Luciano Pitronello, a 23-year-old anarchist on trial for a bombing attempt last year, was sentenced to six years of probation by the Fourth Oral Criminal Tribunal in Santiago on Wednesday. Pitronello will serve the sentence under house arrest.
Pitronello’s lawyer, Carlos Mora, spoke of his client’s satisfaction after the sentencing.
“He is very satisfied by the verdict because the only thing he was asking for was to not be labelled as a terrorist, because he isn’t one,” Mora told the press. “He knew he was to be convicted, and he risked effective punishments.”
