According to the sentence, José Arcadio D. is convicted of two crimes of attempted murder with the circumstance that aggravates the penalty of gender in both cases and of kinship in terms of his ex-partner; as well as for one crime of habitual abuse, another of harassment and two of threats. He is acquitted of the crime of belonging to a criminal organization.

Although the sentence totals 41 years and three months in prison, the Chamber points out in the ruling that "he will not be able to serve more than 25 years for the total prison sentences imposed". In addition, the situation of deprivation of liberty in which he is being held from his arrest is extended until January 2033.

On November 13, 2023, the Eighth Section of the Malaga Court began the oral hearing against this defendant and five other people - including the defendant who accompanied him that day, nicknamed 'el Poti', who has been convicted.

The trial was scheduled for sentencing on December 1. 'El Melillero' denied that he wanted to kill them or cause harm to the two victims and assured that "the intention was to give them a scare".
