Lucas Hernandez given 6-month prison sentence after defying restraining order

A Madrid court has sentenced Bayern player Lucas Hernandez to six months in prison over disobeying a restraining order after a 2017 conviction of domestic violence against his wife.

A court document released on Wednesday revealed Hernandez had been denied an appeal by court in Madrid against a previous suspended prison sentence for disobeying the restraining order.




The document said the Bayern defender had been denied appeal as he was previously given two criminal sentences, both relating to the February 2017 incident.

Bayern Munich & Hernandez’s representatives did not immediately respond to a request to make a comment from Reuters.




He has now been ordered to attend court in Madrid on October 19, from which he has just 10 days to voluntarily enter prison. However, Hernandez has appealed against the order.

The Frenchman was sentenced to 31 days community service for assaulting his then girlfriend and now wife in February 2017, when he was still playing for Atletico Madrid.

The player was also given a restraining order which prevents him from being within 500 metres of his partner, who was also given 31 days community service for violence, assault & damage to property.

Hernandez was arrested in June 2017 for defying the restraining order after landing in Madrid with his wife after their marriage & honeymoon.




Hernandez made his professional debut for Atletico in 2014 before moving to Bayern in 2019 for €80m. He has played 29 matches for France, winning the 2018 World Cup and lifting the 2021 UEFA Nations League trophy.
