According to Diario Democracia, prosecutor Alejandra Del Rio Ayala has requested 20 years in prison for former world champion Carlos Manuel Baldomir, 47-years-old, who is being charged with the alleged sexual abuse of his own daughter in the city of Santa Fe.
The investigation began on October 29, 2016 as a result of a complaint made by the victim's mother. For his part, on December 26, 2017, Baldomir was officially charged as the perpetrator of the crimes.
During the investigation phase, the minor was interviewed and - "according to the psychologists who spoke with her, the girl made a logical and coherent story," said the prosecutor.
Baldomir (49-16-6, 15 KOs) retired from the sport of boxing in April of 2014 after losing three out of his last four fights.
His biggest year was in 2006, with upset wins over Zab Judah to capture the WBC, IBF welterweight belts and then he knocked out Arturo Gatti a few months later. The two victories landed him a year-end HBO pay-per-view clash with Floyd Mayweather - who dominated Baldomir over twelve rounds.
Baldomir's last major fight on American television, was in 2010 when he was brutally knocked out by Canelo Alvarez in an HBO televised bout from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
"The facts began being investigated by prosecutors Omar De Pedro and María Lucila Nuzzo, and then the file was transferred to the Special Prosecutor's Unit for Gender, Family and Sexual Violence," the prosecutor said.
"The crimes began to be committed in 2008 when the girl was less than seven years old. According to the story of the victim, they occurred in the house she shared with her father and in which the mother of the minor and other siblings lived in the city of Santa Fe. The girl explained that the abuses were maintained over time and also consumed in other places. On at least two occasions, they occurred while the victim and her father were moving in a car, and even in the presence of other people."
