Bayern Munich’s Lucas Hernandez avoids jail for disobeying restraining order


Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez will not go to jail in Spain after a court upholds his appeal against a six-month sentence for disobeying a restraining order following a 2017 conviction for violence domestic against his wife.

The France international had until midnight Thursday, October 28 to enter prison voluntarily, but Section 26 of the Madrid Provincial Court ruled on Wednesday that the sentence had been suspended and that he would have to pay a fine of € 96,000 to the square.

“With regard to his family and social situation, it was emphasized in the appeal that the convict lives with Ms. de la Osa and their son, without any new incident between them being recorded,” according to court documents.

While Hernandez has already been convicted twice, court documents add that a sentence may be suspended “taking into account the personal situation of the detainee, the nature of the fact, his conduct and, in particular, the efforts made. to repair the damage caused “.

If Hernandez commits another offense within the next four years, the suspension will be revoked and the penalty will be imposed.

He also received an injunction preventing him from being within 500 meters of his partner, who was also sentenced to 31 days of community service for violence, assault and property damage.

Hernandez was arrested in June 2017 for defying the restraining order after landing in Madrid with his wife after their wedding and honeymoon.

He made his professional debut for Atletico in 2014 before joining Bayern in 2019 for € 80million.

He made 29 appearances for France, winning the 2018 World Cup and the 2021 UEFA Nations League trophy.
