Beauty Queen Sofia Vergara’s husband is currently behind bars after being accused of sexually abusing his own daughter.
The Spanish singer-actress is accused of forcing her then-boyfriend, who she married in 2011, to have sex with his wife’s body in a hotel room in the early hours of January 15, 2017, the court in the Spanish capital Madrid heard.
Ms VergARA was not in court for the hearing.
Her husband, Miguel Varela, was remanded in custody until his trial is set to begin later this year.
Prosecutors said the couple were in the middle of a romance when they first met.
The court was told they began to have a “sexual affair” shortly after the couple first met and they began having sex in the morning, before leaving for the day.
It is understood that the affair would continue until around 2am.
Ms Vareca, who is now 34, and Ms Vergarela have two children together.
Her lawyer, Miguel Pascual, told the court that her daughter had been subjected to severe psychological damage and that her father’s “physical and sexual abuse” was “unacceptable”.
He said his client had been “shocked and saddened” by the allegations.
Ms VERGARA, who lives in Madrid with her husband and their two daughters, was originally charged with child sex abuse but was later convicted of aggravated sexual assault.
She was sentenced to six months in prison and is currently being held in a Madrid prison.
She said she was sorry for her “bad behavior” and for the “horrible” “sad” experience that she had been in.
In a statement to The Associated Press, her lawyer said her client “is ashamed” and “cannot accept what she did”.
The case was adjourned until next month, when it will be heard by a judge.The AP
