The young people are accused of having gang raped the teenager during the early morning of January 1, 2019 in a tent at the “El Durazno” campsite, located at the entrance to Miramar, where she was celebrating New Years with her family.
Once the jury was made up, an intermission was held until 3 o’clock, when the hearing of the debate began, with the reception of the oath to the members of the popular court, and explanation of the initial instructions.
Then the prosecution and the adolescent’s lawyer presented their arguments, who insisted on the accusation of sexual abuse.
Next, the three private defenders of the accused – Noelia Agüero, in the Pitman case; Martín Bernat and Agustin Robbio in Jaime’s, and Marcelo Jimenez on the part of Villalba-, they assured that they will ask for the acquittal of the young people.
Agüero stated in turn during the first day of the trial that it was a consensual act, while the defenders of the other two defendants considered that the participation of both is not proven.
At the end of the first day, the parents of the minor gave their testimony as affected individuals, and then went to an intermission room.
