Modena, October 23 - A former 'Mister Universe' was
absolved of his conviction and six-year prison sentence in the
doping death of his bodybuilding girlfriend on Tuesday.
The Appeals Court found that "the crime does not exist" in
the case of 44-year-old Federico Focherini, winner of the Mister
Universe title in 1996.
Focherini had been found guilty of illegally administering
dangerous drugs to his girlfriend, 34-year-old Claudia Bianchi,
just before a bodybuilding competition in Rome on March 4, 2004.
The Appeals Court allowed that Focherini's case had taken
its course to trial largely due to it's notoriety in Modena,
where the bodybuilder's gym is located.
The crimes of which Focherini was accused had passed the
statute of limitations, but wanting to clear his name, Focherini
chose to go to trial anyway under an accelerated judicial
process.
"In one minute, eight years of suffering have been
cancelled," said Focherini after his absolution was read in
court.
