Rape Allegations: Cristiano Ronaldo’s DNA Sample Requested by Las Vegas Police
Police in Las Vegas have issued a warrant for a DNA sample from Cristiano Ronaldo as part of their investigation into the rape allegations made against the Juventus forward.
The reports state that the warrant has been sent to the court system in Italy, where the five-time Ballon d’Or winner plays for league leaders Juventus.
Detectives reopened the case last year after Kathryn Mayorga filed a lawsuit alleging Ronaldo raped her in 2009.
The suit asks for general damages, special damages, punitive damages and special relief, each in excess of $50,000, along with interest, attorneys fees and court costs.
Ronaldo denies all claims made against him.
