Trial time for Benjamin Mendy, after a year of descent into hell


This Wednesday morning will begin a long judicial soap opera in the court of Chester in England. Benjamin Mendy will appear before the English courts to answer the ten counts of which he is the subject. The trial is expected to last a little over a month. Scheduled for July 25, the trial of Benjamin Mendy will finally open in England. It is in the very small courtroom of the Chester court that Benjamin Mendy will take his place shortly after 11 a.m. (French time), Wednesday morning. It’s a pivotal moment for the 28-year-old, the most important month of his life. Seven women, including a minor, accuse him of ten facts. Eight rapes, one attempted rape and one assault. The facts that the alleged victims denounce would all have taken place in his large villa in Prestbury, south of Manchester between October 2018 and August 2021. “It’s hot for him, the multiplicity of testimonies does not plead in his favor”, confides a great Parisian lawyer. For six weeks, Benjamin Mendy will have to explain himself on the merits of the case and try to provide explanations and a defense to convince the judges. “The explanation of his lawyer in order to convince the judges will perhaps be the turning point of this trial”, continues the lawyer. The debates will mainly revolve around the question of consent. During the pre-trial hearings, the 2018 world champion defender with the Blues pleaded not guilty. Mendy did not respect his first judicial review jury. From Monday, August 15, English justice will study the merits of the case. Since his release after his 134 days in detention, Benjamin Mendy has been placed under judicial supervision. The defender no longer has a passport and is obliged to check in daily at the police station near his home. A real life in the shadows for those used to nightclubs and lively evenings in the heart of their villa. The player is now stuck in his large home south of Manchester. A few relatives are still by his side. The defender, suspended by Manchester City, still takes advantage of a few sporting or administrative opportunities to get some fresh air outside his home. During the first movements of the case in November 2020 and January 2021, it was, according to our information, the judicial control which had posed a problem and led to his placement in detention. Subsequently, the English justice had decided to place the player in a prison near Liverpool before a transfer to a high security district in Manchester. What is he at risk? After a year of investigation, the police have thickened the file of Benjamin Mendy. The seven plaintiffs have always remained silent publicly. It is very rare in England to see the victims speak in the media during the procedure. This Wednesday morning, Benjamin Mendy will be judged alongside Louis Saha Matturie (no relation to the former footballer). Justice accuses this man of eight rapes and four sexual assaults. This case is of great interest in England and also resonates with the announcement of sexual consent training for Premier League players. “The sentences are consecutive, the court must bear in mind the principle of totality. This means that the total sentence must be proportionate, says English barrister Richard Furlong, meaning that if he is convicted of eight rapes, each of which would warrant a 10-year sentence, he will not get a full sentence 80 years. The fact that someone has committed eight offenses will be used to increase the total sentence by 10 years within the range of the offense, and possibly outside the range. So for eight offenses, the sentence may be increased to 13 or 14 years old. This is an example to better understand.”Concerning the rest, Benjamin Mendy should see more clearly during the month of September. For the facts with which he is charged, the French risk life in England. Contacted, Benjamin Mendy’s English lawyers never wished to speak before the start of the trial. The defender is still presumed innocent.
