“I don’t regret anything, thank God”, were the words of Fabián Constantino when he got out of the vehicle of his defense lawyer, Mario Arcusin, when he brought him to the Courts where he heard the Court’s sentence, he preferred silence.
Regarding the allegations, the complaint represented by Juan Ignacio Weimberg requested 22 years in prison for Constantino, as announced before the start of the day.
For its part, the Public Prosecutor’s Office in charge of Lisandro Beherán and Martina Cedrés made a request for 15 years in effective prison, that is, in a common jail and not at home as is the current condition of Fabián Constantino. For prosecutor Cedrés “the facts were proven” throughout the 10 trial hearings.
