The transfer window of FC prison seems to continue within the French selection. After Benjamin Mendy, it’s Lucas Hernandez’s turn to respond to his actions in court. The French international, accused of domestic violence on his partner could well find himself behind bars.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, the Spanish justice has ordered the imprisonment of Lucas Hernandez, former player of Atlético Madrid, now at Bayern Munich for domestic violence.
The summons to appear on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at 11 a.m., requires the player to appear in court so that he can enter the prison of his choice within 10 days. Theo’s brother should pay his one-year prison sentence for violating a restraining order
While Hernandez and his wife have both publicly stated that they have moved past the incident in question, authorities appear to be keen to push for Hernandez’s imprisonment.
In December 2019, Hernandez was sentenced to six months in prison for violating the restraining order. In Spain, those sentenced to less than two years usually do not go to jail, but in this case, since it was a repeat offense, Hernandez was ordered to do so.
In February 2017, Hernandez was arrested after his girlfriend was taken to hospital with minor injuries following a fight between them. Neither has lodged a complaint against the other, but both have been indicted by the Spanish public prosecutor.
The former Atletico Madrid and his girlfriend have each been sentenced to 31 days of community service. They were also ordered not to see each other for six months.
Four months later, Hernandez was arrested at Madrid airport along with his partner, who has not been arrested as his own injunction had yet to be officially served.
