The Criminal Court number 32 of Madrid has ordered the imprisonment of Lucas Hernández, a Bayern Munich player who has recently been proclaimed champion of the Nations League with the French team and who was previously an Atlético de Madrid player.
The ordering procedure was issued by the attorney from the Justice Administration, Mrs. Aurora Arrebola del Valle, on September 14. In said diligence, “Mr. Lucas François Bernard Hernández is summoned to appear in this Court on October 19, 2021, at 11:00 a.m., in order to be personally requested to enter voluntarily within ten days. in the Penitentiary center of your choice ”.
The events date back to February 3, 2010. Lucas Hernández, then Atlético de Madrid player, starred with his wife, Amelia de la Osa Lorente, in a crime of abuse in the family environment in the middle of the street. Then, a Madrid court sentenced both to 31 days of community service and prevented them from approaching or communicating by any means for six months, which is commonly known as a restraining order.
Despite those convictions (both him and her), they both decided to go on their honeymoon together. On the way back from the honeymoon, at 9:30 on June 13, both were surprised at the ticket filter of the Adolfo Suárez-Madrid Barajas airport after landing on a flight from Miami.
Lucas was detained and placed at the disposal of the Violence Against Women Court number 3 in Madrid, which subsequently released him. Amelia was identified but not detained, as the court had not yet notified her of the restraining order.
Subsequently, The Prosecutor’s Office requested a year in prison for Lucas on understanding that the footballer broke the accommodation sentence.
The 35th Criminal Court of Madrid sentenced Lucas to one year in prison. Lucas’s lawyers requested the suspension or replacement of the sentence for community benefit work, but the appeal was denied since Lucas had already initially failed to complete the 31 days of work that were imposed on him in 2017.
It must be emphasized that the cause for which Lucas Hernández is now being requested to enter prison is not because of that initial altercation with his current wife, but because he disobeyed an order given by a judge, so now it is the Administration of Justice that goes against the player.
Lucas’ defense has filed an appeal against that sentence and it will be the Provincial Court that considers it or rejects it. In any case, Lucas must be personally in Madrid on October 19 so that, within ten days, he can choose the Penitentiary Center where to enter.
As the case is already resolved, you cannot request a postponement, although It is possible that the Court will consider the appeal and dictate that Lucas should not enter prison or that he enter prison and be released after a few days.
In accordance with the current regulatory framework, in criminal enforcement, once the courts deny an alternative measure to imprisonment, the convicted person enters and, if the appeal is upheld, is released.
To all this, Bayern Munich still claimed yesterday, October 13, that they had no knowledge of this causeAlthough the player was notified on September 14, a month earlier, he had not communicated it.
