But CAS have increased Guerrero's suspension from six to 14 months on the basis that he did bear "some fault or negligence" for the positive test, and must therefore face a ban of between one and two years under FIFA's own anti-doping rules.
Guerrero was initially banned for 12 months after testing positive for cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine following Peru'sWorld Cup qualifier with Argentina in October previous year.
Peru will be at this summer's 2018 World Cup for the first time since 1982 after its admirable showing on CONMEBOL's qualifying, but if hopes to do any damage at the tournament, it's going to have to without arguably its best and most high-profile player.
But less than a week after he attended a CAS hearing in a bid to completely annul a ban for testing positive for traces of cocaine, CAS increased his sentence for falling foul of "an anti-doping rule violation (presence of Benzoylecgonine metabolites)".
His lawyers argued the stimulant had not been performance enhancing, and was accidentally consumed in contaminated tea.

Cas said the Flamengo forward had ingested a tea containing the prohibited substance. They questioned the CAS's intentions for the ban despite admitting that Guerrero was not significantly negligent and his intention was not to enhance his performance.
Guerrero marked his return from the Federation Internationale de Football Association ban with a goal for Flamengo in a 3-2 loss to Chapecoense.

This is the second ruling by CAS that has a huge impact on Peru's 2018 World Cup journey. They reduced the ban in a fast-tracked appeal last December which clearing him to play at the World Cup.
Former Bayern Munich player Guerrero has scored 32 goals in 86 appearances for his country.
"FIFPro considers the ban unfair and disproportionate, and the latest example of a World Anti Doping code that too often leads to inappropriate sanctions, especially when it has been established that there was no intent to cheat", it said.
Bolivia fielded an ineligible player in a 2-0 win over Peru, and that result was overturned to a 3-0 loss by default.
