Ex-Manchester City Star, Benjamin Mendy Cleared Of Rape Case

Former Manchester City player, Benjamin Mendy has been cleared of raping a woman and attempting to rape another.

Mendy 28, was accused of attacking a 24-year-old woman at his £4m mansion in Mottram St Andrew, Cheshire in October 2020.

He was also accused of the attempted rape of another woman, aged 29, who said he had also molested her at his home two years before.

As reported by BBC, the verdict comes after he was cleared of six rapes at an earlier trial in January.

The France international broke down in tears as the not guilty verdicts were read out by the jury foreman following a three-week trial at Chester Crown Court.

The footballer whose contract with Manchester City expired this month, was cleared at the earlier trial of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault, relating to four young women or teenagers.
