Amadou Doumbouya, who comes from Guinea, was recruited by Djurgården as recently as last spring.

He was arrested on October 6 on probable cause on suspicion of rape.

In addition to rape, Doumbouya was also charged with offensive photography on seven occasions as well as minor drug offences.

However, he was acquitted of both rape and offensive photography. According to the district court, it is beyond reasonable doubt that the woman did not participate voluntarily.

Amadou Doumbouya is sentenced for minor drug offenses to 30 daily fines of SEK 530.

The prosecutor will appeal the sentence against the 20 -year-old soccer player, who has been suspended from Djurgården.
