The Provincial Court of Madrid accepts the appeal of the Bayern soccer player and suspends the sentence of six months in prison for breaking a restraining order


Lucas Hernández, the French international defender of Bayern Munich, has been saved almost on the bell of entering prison for disobeying a restraining order, after accepting his appeal on Wednesday the Provincial Court of Madrid. “We believe that the appeal must be upheld and the suspension of the execution of the imprisonment sentence imposed,” said this court in the order.

The decision of the Hearing comes just one day before the Thursday midnight limit was met for the footballer to enter prison to serve a six-month sentence for breaking a restraining order of what was then his partner and today is his wife.

The suspension of the sentence is for a period of four years and is conditional on Lucas Hernández “not committing any new crime during that time,” as well as paying a fine of 96,000 euros, the judge says.

The Frenchman’s case dates back to February 2017, when Lucas Hernández and his partner Amelia de la Osa Lorente were sentenced to 31 days of community service and to stay apart and without communication for six months for a strong fight in which they attacked each other.

Only four months later, already reconciled, the player and his partner were intercepted at the Madrid airport when they were returning together from a trip to the United States. The footballer was detained a few hours before being released, while Lorente was not detained because the restraining order had not yet been formally communicated to her.

As a result of this episode, Lucas Hernández was tried and sentenced in December 2019 to six months in prison for violating the restraining order. In Spain, those sentenced to less than two years in prison do not usually go to prison, but in this case, since it was a repeat offense, Hernández had to go to prison despite being a minimum sentence.

Thus, a Madrid court ordered the execution of the sentence on October 13, and five days later, the soccer player appeared to collect the prison order, which gave him ten days to enter the prison voluntarily and against which had appealed.

Family situation

The Provincial Court of Madrid estimated the appeal based on Hernández’s current family situation and the low probability that he would commit a crime again. He recalls in his decision that, although Lucas Hernández was tried for violating a restraining order, “it cannot be ignored that the person he could not approach consented to that approach”, referring to their trip to the United States, where they were married. .

The order also explains that since June 2017, when the restraining order was violated, “there is no record in his record of the commission of any new criminal act, which can be assessed to consider that at present it is not necessary to wait for the execution of the penalty to prevent the convict from committing a crime ”.

Finally, the Court recalls the current family situation of the footballer, who “lives with Mrs. de la Osa and their son, without any new incidents between them.”

Therefore, the Court accepted Hernández’s appeal, suspending his sentence to the relief of the French international and his teams. The entry into prison of Lucas would have been a setback for Bayern Munich, which marches first in the Bundesliga and also in its Champions group, and of which it is a mainstay of its defense.

The center-back, transferred from Atlético de Madrid to Bayern in 2019 for 80 million euros, the highest recruitment in the history of the Bavarian club, also sees his horizon clearing with the French team with a World Cup in sight in Qatar 2022.
