The members of the court did not agree on the charge of rape which was attributed to the 39-year-old defendant, as four members voted in favor of his acquittal for this offense, with a minority of the president, a congressman and a juror who ruled that he should be found guilty of rape.

The four judges who ruled on the decision did not accept the proposal of the Prosecutor who had earlier pleaded guilty to both charges against him, asking only his acquittal for seducing the minor athlete, due to the absorption of the act by the heavier crime of misconduct.
