Sex with an underage prostitute

Franck Riebery

Benzema was just 26 years old when he was charged with having sex with Zahia Dehar, who was then under the age of 18.

To make matters worse, there was a fine detail of him paying Dehar for the act.

The Real Madrid forward was not alone, with Franck Ribery also caught in the same net.

The duo got off lightly but could have been sentenced to three years in prison and a princely fine of 45,000 Euros.
