Former major champion Angel Cabrera jailed for domestic violence

Former Masters and US Open champion Angel Cabrera has been jailed for two years for domestic violence.

The two-time major winner was arrested in Rio last month and a number of outlets including ESPN are reporting that Cabrera has now been sentenced by a court in Buenos Aires for assaulting a former partner.

A court in the province of Cordoba, 500 miles northwest of Buenos Aires, convicted the 51-year-old of assaulting, threatening and harassing Cecilia Torres Mana, his partner between 2016 and 2018.

Cabrera, who denied in the trial any wrongdoing, will serve his sentence immediately.

“His situation is much more complex than this, he has other charges for which there are arrest warrants, too. There are other victims,” prosecutor Laura Battistelli told TV channel Todo Noticias.

The first charges brought were for his assault of Torres Mana. Two other former partners also said he assaulted them.
