Former cybersportswoman Shayene “shAy” Victorio, made a name for herself in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. For four years (from 2013 to 2017), she managed an online store that, according to ESPN, lied to customers.
During the operation of her store, 118 customers were deceived who never received the goods they purchased. For this, she was sentenced to 116 years in prison.
She was already sentenced, but she was not arrested. ESPN explains that under Brazilian law, a convicted person can appeal a sentence, and remain at large until a court of appeal has decided.
Despite the fact that she was sentenced to 116 years, she will spend in prison no more than 30 years. The fact is that under Brazilian law this term is considered the maximum, regardless of how much the convict was sentenced.
On Instagram, Victorio confidently informed fans that she would not be arrested. She explained that she now streams regularly and is not on the run. She blames her husband for the whole situation. According to her, he took full responsibility for cheating customers. According to the Brazilian UOL website, Victorio’s lawyer made a statement that the company made more than 10,000 successful sales and deliveries, and her client was unfairly dishonored on the Internet and will appeal against the verdict.
