This medium accessed the full text of processing signed by Judge Del Viso. The description of the facts, to begin with, is disturbing.
The first incident of which he is accused occurred on January 8, 2019 in a hotel accommodation on Oro Street in Palermo. “The accused told her that the father was a very womanizing man, and that if he had known her, he would have wanted to fuck her.”, states the transcript. What follows in the text is irreproducible.
The second fact It happens in the middle of a drunken Medina with a bottle of absinthe, in another hotel accommodation, the Venus, located in San Martín y Empedrado. “The victim said that once she finished Medina, the victim started crying and told her that she didn’t like her.” The response she received, according to her story, was: “Why are you crying, if whores like it?”
The third occurred between September 18 or 19, 2019, after Fernández picked up Medina at the El Trece studios in Constitución, to go sleep at the woman’s house in José Mármol. “While they were sleeping, at night, Medina woke up Mónica Marcela Fernández, covered her mouth with one of her hands, and in a lying position teaspoon He told him that he had entered the room and it was his father., that she was the little daughter, that she was the little girl, that she didn’t have to tell her mother anything,” the text states. Then, according to her accusation, he would have abused her.
“This situation, as Fernández explained it, was forced, every time Medina put his hand over her mouth, and covered it in such a way that it prevented her from speaking, while telling her that every woman’s fantasy was to sleep with her father“, continued the judge, reflecting the victim’s testimony.
In his investigation before the judge, Medina not only denied all the facts: he even denied that the complainant was his partner. He stated that he met her on a social network in 2015 and that he could go months without seeing her, a relationship that was, in any case, occasional.
However, the judge valued the testimony of a woman who appeared at the prosecutor’s office in the caseby Marcelo Roma: the woman assured that she had been with the driver in the middle of the relationship and that He experienced episodes of violence similar to those suffered by Fernández.
The psychologist who treated Fernández also testified in the file.

He risk assessment report prepared by the Office of Victim and Witness Assistance It was particularly incriminating. In the report, it was recorded that the attacks carried out by the accused began in 2016. He reported on the psychological abuse that Medina allegedly exercised through “cellopathy, restrictions on his person, control of his activities, denigration” in addition to the reported facts.
The Directorate of Support, Guidance and Protection for Victims of the Public Prosecutor’s Office He also interviewed the victim and provided a similar report. The psychological evaluation of the Forensic Medical Corps carried out on the victim further validated her testimony: it determined that “no psychotic disorders were detected in Fernández, in whose person a tendency to concretely manage reality would prevail and at times with marked emergence of anxiety and anguish.”
