Argentine former welterweight world boxing champion Carlos Baldomir was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Wednesday for the repeated sexual abuse of one of his daughters, a court in Santa Fe has announced.
The 48-year-old, who was World Boxing Council champion for 10 months in 2006, was arrested in 2016 following allegations by his ex-wife that he had abused his daughter between 2012 and 2014, when she was seven to eight years old.
He was unanimously convicted of "repeated sexual abuse" of a minor in the court, headed by judges Pablo Busaniche, Rodolfo Mingarini and Susana Luna.
The sentence was read out behind closed doors to protect the identity of the victim. Prosecutors had sought a 20-year sentence.
