A PRISONER from Velez Malaga has requested to stay in jail to finish a training course.

The 36-year-old Bolivian man, who is in prison in Alhaurin de la Torre, will now stay in jail until November, fulfilling the maximum term of his pre-trial sentence.  He claimed he wanted to finish a course which he believes will help “pay back on the street.”

Surprised judges granted the man’s request, saying it was the first time in their long legal careers they had been asked to keep someone behind bars.

The man was jailed for four years for sexually assaulting his flatmate while she slept in Velez Malaga.

The incident occurred in the early hours of November 29 2015 when the Bolivian national, who had been ordered to leave Spain in 2009, crept into his flatmate’s room while she slept, stripped her and assaulted her.

The girl woke up in pain and threw the man out.  He later texted her to apologise and admitted what he had done, saying he was sad he had lost a good friend.

The convicted has also been handed a restraining order preventing him from contacting his victim for five years, as well as five years’ probation after he has fulfilled his jail time.
