Why Footballer Benjamin Mendy faces retrial

Footballer Benjamin Mendy faces retrial for alleged S3x Offences

French footballer Benjamin Mendy will return to a UK courtroom Monday, June 26 for the start of his retrial for two alleged sexual offences, five months after a jury cleared him of multiple other counts.


Mendy, 28, will be back in the dock at Chester Crown Court in northwest England to face one count of rape and one of attempted rape.

Jurors in his last trial, which ended in January, failed to reach verdicts on the two charges involving two different women.

The panel of seven men and four women had cleared the defender of six other counts of rape and one of sexual assault against four women following a six-month trial.

The judge in January set a new trial date of Monday for the two counts on which the jury did not return a verdict.


Mendy, whose contract with Manchester City expires at the end of this month has denied all the charges filed against him.

Jenny Wiltshire, one of his lawyers, said at the time that the footballer was “delighted” that he had been acquitted of most of the charges he faced.

She added at the time that he looked forward to “clearing his name in relation to the other two charges so he can start rebuilding his life”.

Mendy was accused alongside Louis Saha Matturie, 41, an alleged “fixer”, who was found not guilty by the jury of three counts of rape relating to two teenagers.

Jurors also failed to reach verdicts on three counts of rape and three counts of sexual assault against Matturie by five other women.

He faces a separate retrial later this year.
