A date has finally be fixed for the trail of Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema for his involvement in the attempted blackmail of Mathieu Valbuena back in 2015.
could face a five-year prison sentence
Benzema was believed to be part of the sex tape blackmail and his crazy decision to request for money to take down the sex tape during the a France national team camp ensured he never played again for France.
Regardless of his good form and improvement in goals, Benzema has been ignored by France and talks of letting him back into the national team is currently been swept under the rug.
But, on October 20th and 22nd, Benzema can be vindicated. He will need to prove he is not guilty and have nothing to do with the sex tape.
If he fails to redeem himself, he will be sentenced to five years in imprisonment and all his years of impeccable success will be forgotten.
