Villa will be tried for the crimes of “Minor injuries aggravated by the constraint and mediation of gender-based violence and coercive threats”. According to spokesmen, a penitentiary court in the province of Buenos Aires is intervening in this case because it is a crime that carries a penalty of up to six years in prison.

In the debate, the events that took place will be known on April 27, 2020in the house that Villa and his ex shared, in the private Saint Thomas district of Canning, where he lived before moving to the country “Venado II”, where the second episode of gender-based violence allegedly occurred in June 2021 for which the attacker he was denounced by another woman who accused him of sexual abuse.

In the context of this first complaint, Cortés disseminates the images through social networksafter which a case was opened in Esteban Echeverría’s Decentralized Functional Education Unit (UFI) 3, specializing in Gender Violence.

In that video, images of the visibly beaten woman were observed, while the complainant recounted violent events she experienced next to the footballer, whom she described as “a rapist, both physical and psychological”.

In June 2021, the Criminal Chamber of Lomas de Zamora confirmed the elevation of this case to trial at the request of the guarantee judge of that district Javier Maffucci Moore, the same one who intervenes in the second case of gender violence involving the footballer.

This second episode was reported by a 26-year-old girl on May 13, 2022 before the same prosecutor who, while asking for Villa’s immediate arrest, Judge Maffucci Moore rejected the request and suggested further investigations.

After being investigated for the crime of “sexual abuse with carnal access” – which provides for up to 15 years in prison – between October and November Villa also underwent a psychological report which, according to his defense lawyer, revealed that the ‘attacker “has no characteristics compatible with the fact that he is accused”.
