But none of his acts convinced the audience or even the Spanish police. Before getting arrested ReSet said, expressing his emotions, in a video, ”Maybe I have gone a little bit too far.” He continued, ”This will help in cleaning his teeth. He might have not brushed since he became poor.”
After waiting for the result for two years, ReSet got sentenced for 15 months in prison and was ordered to pay €20000 and also close his Youtube channel, and all other social media accounts for the next 5 years.
The judge said that the viral video was “a clear and unambiguous act of humiliating content” which caused “physical suffering” to the victim. She said, ReSet “humiliated and vexed a vulnerable person, homeless, of much older age, who does not speak the official languages and has deteriorated due to street life and alcoholism.”
