Brescia, January 28 - Enock Barwuah, younger
brother of Manchester United striker Mario Balotelli, was
sentenced to four months in jail Monday for resisting a public
officer and violence.
Barwuah, 19, was arrested last month and accused of
assaulting three police officers called to break up a fight at a
bar in Bagnolo Mella, in the province of Brescia.
Barwuah's sentence was suspended for one year, "a benefit
granted very rarely," his lawyer Alessandro Bertoli said.
Barwuah was also ordered to pay damages of 600 euros to one
injured police officer, 2,000 euros to another officer more
seriously hurt, and 250 euros in damages to a vehicle.
Bertoli said Barwuah had hoped to be acquitted on the
charges, stemming from an incident shortly before Christmas, but
is still satisfied with the sentence.
An appeal is still being considered, although Bertoli said
that it may be strategically smarter to just accept the sentence
and ask that his criminal record be cleared after one year.
