The Manchester City player and French international, Benajmin Mendy, is to be granted restricted freedom.
Manchester City’s French international defender Benjamin Mendy, accused of seven crimes of rape and sexual assault, was released on bail on Friday by a court in northwest England and placed on judicial probation pending trial. Judge Patrick Thompson released Mendy, 27, on bail at a hearing at Chester Crown Court, under “strict” conditions including the seizure of his passport. Mendy has been in detention since his arrest and indictment on August 26th. Thompson said the trial will not take place until at least June, but Mendy is scheduled to appear again for a hearing on January 24th.
