Former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio Facing Life Sentence

Alberto Del Rio has been part of several controversies over the course of the last few years, with the latest being an arrest in May over sexual assault charges. Del Rio was indicted by a grand jury in San Antonio, Texas this week, and is all set to be arraigned today.

According to PWInsider, the former WWE Champion is facing charges of aggravated kidnapping in the first degree. Based on these charges, he could face 5 to 99 years in prison and/or $10,000 in fine.

If the jury rules it to be a second degree charge, the prison time drops down to 2-20 years and/or a similar fine of 10k dollars. revealed details about the arrest, and it doesn’t look quite good for the superstar.

“Police said Rodriguez Chucuan [Del Rio] then tied the woman’s hands with boxing straps, put a sock in her mouth and sexually assaulted her for several hours, using various objects. According to investigators, he also punched her in the back during the assault, causing visible injuries. The victim told detectives she does not remember much after he placed his hand around her throat.”

If Del Rio is asked to pay a fine and get away, he can avoid prison time, but the report doesn’t paint a pretty picture for him.
