Twice main hero Angel Cabrera was sentenced to two years in prison

A court in Argentina sentenced two-time major champion Angel Cabrera to two years in prison on Wednesday for assaulting, threatening and harassing a former partner between 2016 and 2018, according to the Associated Press.

Prosecutor Laura Battistelli said this story is far from over.

“His situation is much more complex than this, he has other charges for which there are arrest warrants, too. There are other victims,” Battistelli told TV channel Todo Noticias.

Cabrera, who won the U.S. Open at Oakmont in 2007 and the Masters in 2009, has denied the charges and will begin his sentence immediately.

Cabrera was arrested by Interpol agents in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in January and was recently extradited to Argentina for trial.

The 51-year-old last competed on the PGA Tour Champions at the Pure Insurance Championship at Pebble Beach last September.
