La Liga: Benzema gets suspended jail term in sex tape trial

Karim Benzema, the France and Real Madrid FC forward, was sentenced to a one-year suspended prison term on Wednesday.

Benzema was found guilty of blackmailing a former international teammate over a sex tape.

The court in Versailles also fined him 75,000 euros ($84,170) and ordered him to pay former teammate Mathieu Valbuena 80,000 euros in legal fees and 150,000 euros in damages.

enzema’s lawyer, however, said he would appeal against the verdict.

Benzema, who had denied any wrongdoing, was absent in court.

Real Madrid has declined to comment on the verdict.

Meanwhile, Benzema and Valbuena both lost their places in the national team in the wake of the scandal, dubbed the “sex tape affair”.

Among Benzema’s co-defendants were childhood friend Karim Zenati, who acted as an intermediary, and Mustapha Zouaoui, one of the suspected architects of the scam.

The four defendants were found guilty in connection with the attempted blackmail.
