He could be fined 5 years in prison
Finally, Karim Benzema has been charged with "complicity in attempted blackmail and participation in a criminal association planning an offence punishable by at least five years imprisonment (in this case blackmail)." He has subsequently released under judicial control, after declaring for more than an hour before the judge.
After freeing him, the judge ordered that Benzema not come into contact with Mathieu Valbuena "or with other defendants."
The player has left the courthouse in a vehicle this afternoon and planned to join the discipline of Real Madrid. The Frenchman arrived Wednesday noon in Paris to declare and was forced to spend the night arrested at the police station.
