Robert Hooter, vice President of Rio 2016 and Brazilian Olympic Committee President Carlos Nuzman was sentenced to 30 years and 11 months in prison, for winning a vote for Rio de Janeiro host the 2016 Olympics.
The trial of the 7th Criminal Court in Rio de Janeiro was made on Thursday.
The 79-year-old executive, who was the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee for more than two decades, was found guilty of money laundering, tax evasion, corruption and criminal organization. Nuzman's lawyers appealed the sentence and will be free until the appeal is heard.
Nozman was first arrested in October 2017 on behalf of his right-hand hand, former Rio 2016 director Leonardo Gryner, accused of using a more than $2 million bribe to hire Rio de Janeiro as host of 2016 olympics in 2009. Rio was awarded the Games in 2009, beating Chicago, Tokyo and Madrid.
Gryner, former governor Sergio Cabral and businessman Arthur Cesar de Menezes Filho were also convicted for bribery and fraud. Gryner was sentenced to 13 years and 10 months in jail for racial organization and crimes.
Cabral, who has been in jail since 2016 after a series of corruption scandals, was sentenced to ten years and eight months in prison. After finding an agreement to disclose sensitive information on other cases to the judge, he had given his own personal details to the judge.
Cabral said that he, Nuzman, Soares and Gryner coordinated to buy the votes of Lamine Diack, the former President of the International Association of Athletics Federations, and his son, Papa Diack, and others.
