Football star Karim Benzema convicted, sentenced to 1 year in prison and fined

Football star Karim Benzema convicted, sentenced to 1 year in prison and fined

France and Real Madrid football star Karim Benzema has been found guilty of plotting to blackmail a fellow French footballer.

A judge has sentenced Benzema to one year in prison and ordered her to pay a fine of 75,000 euros.

Benzema, 33, is one of five people charged last month with attempting to extort money from Frenchman Matthew Valboena, a June 2015 case when the two footballers were in a French training camp.

At the camp, prosecutors said Benzema pressured Valboina to pay the blackmailers with whom Benzema had conspired to act as mediator.

Benzema has always denied the allegations and insisted he was only trying to help Valboina.

Benzema and Valboina, who played for the Greek club Olympia Cos, were not present in the Versailles court at the time of the decision.

Four of Benzema’s co-defendants were also convicted in the trial on Wednesday and sentenced to 18 months to two and a half years in prison.

Benzema’s lawyers said they would appeal the sentence.
