Real Madrid star Karim Benzema charged in extortion case

-

Real Madrid star Karim Benzema has been formally charged in France with extortion reports say. Benzema turned himself in Wednesday and was charged earlier today in an extortion case revolving around Benzema’s French national team teammate Martin Valbuena.

Investigators claim that Benzema played a role in trying to blackmail Valbuena in exchange for not releasing a sex tape with Valbuena in it. If Benzema is convicted he faces up to five years in jail.

On the field, niether Benzema nor Valbuena have been selected for France’s upcoming friendlies against Germany and England. Benzema has vehemently denied any wrongdoing in the case.
