Initially, the Bucharest Tribunal (court of first instance) sentenced Oprescu, in May 2019, to 5 years and 4 months in prison, a sentence increased by the Bucharest Court of Appeal to 10 years and 8 months, after the judges applied the aggravating form of the crime of setting up an organized criminal group.

Punishments were merged and, with the addition of an increase, these resulted in 10 years and 8 months in prison.

The court also ordered the special confiscation from Oprescu of the amounts of 25,000 euros, 102,400 lei and 9,500 euros.

The magistrates also decided the extended confiscation of the building located in Bucharest, Herastrau Street, bought by Sorin Oprescu through his girlfriend Adriana-Elena Nica.
