Benzema Found Guilty Over Sex-Tape Scandal

Karim Benzema has finally learned his fate over his infamous sex-tape blackmail case.

The 33-year-old was facing charges of complicity in the blackmail of his former France teammate Mathieu Valbuena.

It was alleged that the Real Madrid forward acted as an intermediary between Valbuena and a group of blackmailers over a sex tape six years ago.

Prosecutors had requested a five-year prison sentence should he be found guilty but he now received a one-year suspended prison sentence, as per GFF, which means he doesn’t actually have to go to jail.  

Benzema can still appeal the ruling.

The forward had even lost his place in the France team in 2015 but returned to Les Bleus ahead of the 202o UEFA European Championship.

He was part of the France squad that recently won the UEFA Nations League. FFF president Noël Le Graët has previously told Le Parisien that the outcome of the trial would have no bearing on Benzema’s availability for selection to the French national team for the coming months.
