It has been a long way to justice. After more than two years, the sexual assault on influencer Morena Diaz (28) came before the Schwyz criminal court yesterday. The ex-teacher was silent about the horror for a long time. «I was blocked, suppressed the attack. In addition, I was in the classic predicament that I did not want to give my best friend to the knife », said Diaz in court. But at the same time the psychological burden became too great. She took all courage and published the act on her blog in early 2020.
In front of the court, Morena Diaz does not mince her words and says: “It was already apparent months before the attack that he was in love with me and that it could become problematic between us.” Alfredo S. * (33) made her several unpleasant advances. It then became violent shortly before Christmas. On December 21, 2018, he urgently wanted to see her before traveling to Italy. They had dinner with his uncle and aunt, then the two of them went to his room to watch a movie. It comes to action.
Kissed and touched with force
Alfredo S. starts his advances. When they do not lead to the goal, the Italian swings onto Morena Diaz’s legs so that she can no longer move. He pushes her undershirt and sweater up, kisses her stomach and breasts. “I tried to push him away,” said the influencer. Then she said no countless times. Her tormentor just carried on.
Morena Diaz said she fell into a state of fright. Alfredo opened her pants and touched her genitals. “He tried to stimulate me. I only felt pain », says Morena Diaz. Her voice breaks, she cries. “Only when he looked into my eyes did he realize what he was doing and let go of me.”
Alfredo S. denies everything in court. “None of this is true,” says the Italian. The attacks simply did not take place. There were two mutual kisses, that was all. His defense attorney is also trying to convince the court that Diaz just made it up – in order to generate even more clicks as an influencer. His accusation: You made it up as ice-cold.
Self-pity on the part of the perpetrator
In the closing words, Alfredo S. does not find a single word to apologize for the violent assault. He prefers to feel sorry for himself and say: “I am probably guilty for my soul, my heart and my time.”
The court could not be convinced of this and found the perpetrator guilty of sexual coercion. Alfredo S. receives a conditional prison sentence of one year and has to leave Switzerland for five years. His lawyer has already filed an appeal. Morena Diaz is happy about the guilty verdict: “This judgment should encourage women!”
