- Juventus First-Team Coach Sentenced To Prison For Manslaughter10:10 | 22/05/2013
Juventus first-team coach Massimo Carrera has been sentenced to two years and six months in prison for the manslaughter of two students in an automobile accident on New Year’s Eve 2011.
Chiara Varani and Patrizia Paninforni, both 23 at the time, were killed after being hit by Carrera while inspecting an earlier accident on the highway.
Carrera was never present at any of the previous hearings and has always challenged, through his lawyers, whether he was responsible for the death of the girls by requesting an acquittal on those grounds.
According to his attorneys, there was no evidence that Paninforni was still in the vicinity of the Ford KA, which they were inspecting after an earlier accident, when Carrera’s Mercedes R class collided with the vehicle. They claim that her body was found lifeless on the ground elsewhere.
With regards to the death of Varani, Carrera’s lawyers state that the coach could not have avoided the car that was stranded in the middle of the A4 in Dalmine Bergamo, regardless of visibility.
An expert’s report had supported Carrera’s claims that he could not have seen the damaged car, however, the prosecution successfully argued to judge Bianca Maria Bianchi that he in fact did have enough time to notice the vehicle and avoid the crash.
