Tito Beltran with defense attorney

Singer convicted of rape

The Gothenburg Court of Appeal has found opera singer Tito Beltran guilty of rape and sentenced him to two-and-a-half years in prison on Friday.

The Chilean-born tenor had been convicted earlier by a court in Ystad for raping an 18-year-old woman and had appealed the verdict.

The Gothenburg jury deemed the evidence presented by the prosecution as binding and upheld the earlier ruling.
