Bayern Munich and France defender Lucas Hernandez has been sentenced to six months in prison by a Madrid court for disobeying a restraining order following a 2017 conviction of domestic violence against his wife, Amelia Ossa Llorente.
A court document released on Wednesday, October 13, said Hernandez, 25, had been denied an appeal by a criminal court in Madrid against a previous suspended prison sentence for defying the restraining order.
The document said Hernandez had been denied the appeal as he had been given two previous criminal sentences, both relating to the February 2017 incident.
He has been ordered to attend court in Madrid on October 19, from which he has 10 days to voluntarily enter prison.
Hernandez has appealed against the latest order.
The footballer was sentenced to 31 days of community service for assaulting his then-girlfriend and now wife in February 2017, when he was an Atletico Madrid player. He was also given a restraining order preventing him from being within 500 metres of his partner, who was also given 31 days of community service for violence, assault and damage to property.
Hernandez was arrested in June 2017 for defying the restraining order.
