Lucas Hernandez avoids jail in Spain

Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez on Wednesday avoided going to jail for disobeying a restraining order imposed after a fight with his partner.

He had been sentenced to six months in prison after the pair were caught together in Spain while on their way home from the United States.

The Provincial Court of Madrid on Wednesday said it accepted an appeal by Hernandez.

“We consider that the appeal should be upheld and agree to the suspension of the execution of the custodial sentence imposed, the court said.

“The suspension of the sentence is for a period of four years — conditional on Hernandez “not committing any new crime during that time.

The court also ordered that Hernandez pay a fine of €96,000 euros (about $111,500).

The jail term for breaking the order was imposed in 2019, the same year Hernandez signed for Bayern, and he appealed at the time.
