In an interview with Marca, a Spanish sports daily, Mauricio Gonzalez, Lucas Hernandez’s lawyer, defended his client on Friday in his domestic violence case, this Friday. He denounces “falsehoods” in the file, and ensures that the French side had already served his sentence.
Hernandez, sentenced in 2018 for “non-compliance with a removal order for domestic violence”, appeared on October 18 with a day in advance in a Madrid court to be notified of his imprisonment order. His lawyer claims that the Bayern Munich defender had already served the sentence, denouncing the “lies” that were disclosed against his client.
“I find it surprising that it is pointed out that Lucas avoided jail, because the headline should be that the Provincial Hearing overturned a decision clearly unfair against my client and which involved his imprisonment,” he explains. he. We were silent in the face of all comments, but truthful information about the proceedings was not addressed. “
No second conviction according to him
The lawyer specifies his reservations. “The first approximation is that Lucas has not served the sentence imposed and this is false because he served his 31-day sentence for the benefit of the community (community service), working with an association from 2017,” Gonzalez continues. This sentence is no longer entered in the file, this criminal record has been erased. The second mistake is that Lucas Hernández had two convictions for such violence, but that never happened. It was an isolated incident that happened when he was 21, he matured personally and it did not happen again. “
Me González considers that the judge’s decision could have been a brake following the career of Lucas Hernández. “Imprisonment would have ended his sports and personal career,” said the lawyer. The Provincial Hearing gave us reason, there is no more appeal against this ordinance and we want to close this chapter after having avoided the unjust imprisonment of Lucas. “
While Lucas Hernandez risked a six-month prison sentence, the Spanish courts on Wednesday accepted the appeal filed by the player’s lawyers. The left side of Bayern Munich has also played in all the matches of the Bavarian club since the victory of the Blues in the League of Nations in early October, four games, and was again the holder against Union Berlin this Saturday afternoon in the Bundesliga .
