Three players in Spanish fourth tier jailed for 38 years for sexually assaulting 15-year-old girl

Three former players of a fourth-division soccer club in Spain were convicted Thursday of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

Former Arandina players Carlos Cuadrado, Víctor Rodriguez and Raul Calvo were each sentenced to 38 years in prison. It wasn't clear if the players -- who denied wrongdoing -- would appeal the ruling.

The three were found guilty of assaulting the girl at a rented apartment in 2017. They said they did not have sexual relations with the girl and did not know she was 15 at the time.
