BARCELONA (Reuters) – A Barcelona court ruled on Wednesday that Brazilian soccer player Dani Alves can be conditionally released from jail on a 1 million euro ($1.08 million) bail despite having only served about a quarter of his sentence of four and a half years for rape.

The decision, which was not unanimous, can still be appealed.
