The leader of the Order and Mandate of San Miguel Arcángel, Feliciano Miguel Rosendo da Silva, sentenced to nine years in prison for a crime of sexual abuse, today defended his innocence again and announced that he will appeal the sentence that sends him to the jail.
In a press conference, the leader of the "Miguelianos", accompanied by his lawyer, Beatriz Seijo, three priests and several followers, has explained that he will present a cassation appeal before the Supreme Court, but that he will do it "not out of hatred, but for the dignity of my wife, my children, and the blessed and blessed who left their lives to help others. "
On December 28, the Superior Court of Justice of Galicia upheld the conviction of Miguel Rosendo as the perpetrator of a crime of continuous sexual abuse "with the help of one of the women who had denounced him.
"I thank the magistrates who have seen a large percentage of the truth, but I have a great pain here because a girl I love as they have all forced to lie and accuse me of facts that are a lie," he added.
Rosendo, for whom the Public Prosecutor's Office and the private prosecution requested 66 and 82 years of prison, respectively, was convicted of one of the four crimes of sexual abuse he faced and was acquitted of conspiracy, against moral integrity, coercion, abuse and continued sexual aggression.
