Ex-Manchester City footballer Benjamin Mendy Cleared Of Rape Charges

Benjamin Mendy has been found not guilty of raping one lady and attempting to rape another.

In October 2020, the 28-year-old was accused of assaulting a 24-year-old lady at his £4 million property in Mottram St Andrew, Cheshire.

Mendy was also accused of attempting to rape another lady, 29, who claimed he touched her at his home two years back.

It comes after he was acquitted of six rapes in a previous trial in January.

The France international sobbed as the jury foreman read out the not guilty verdicts following a three-week trial at Chester Crown Court.

Judge Steven Everett said: “Mr Mendy can be discharged from the dock.”

The jury of six men and six women deliberated for around three hours and fifteen minutes before reaching a decision.

The French international’s contract with Manchester City expired on July 1, 2023.
