Karim Benzema Acquitted in Zahia Dehar Trial

The French court drops charges against Karim Benzema and Franck Ribéry.

Scott Heavey

After almost three years, the French court has decided that there was no evidence to prove that Benzema and Ribéry knew that Zahia Dehar was a minor. If they were convicted, they would have been facing up to three years in prison.

Benzema has been playing great this season, but he will surely feel relieved after his charges have been dropped, so he could even improve his performances.

Benzema is now a mature player who has not been involved in conflicting reports for quite some time now.
