According to Sport Writer Gazzetta dello Sport , the former AC Milan and Manchester City man is one of a group of five which were found guilty of sexually assaulting an Albanian girl in a Milan night club on January 22, 2013.
The married Brazilian star, 33, who played for Man City, was sentenced along with five other men.
Robinho was playing for the Rossoneri at the time.
Though Robinho has been found guilty, the Italian justice system allows for several levels of appeal, which means the verdict is essentially put on hold.
