Benjamin Mendy rape and sexual assault trial set for January

1 min read

Benjamin Mendy will go on trial early next year after being accused of the rape of two women and the sexual assault of a third alleged victim.

The Manchester City left-back spoke only to confirm his name during the 45-minute hearing at Chester Crown Court, where a date of 24 January, 2022 was set for his trial, accused of four counts of rape and one of sexual assault.

The charges were not put to him and no pleas were entered during the hearing, which dealt largely with administrative matters ahead of the trial.

A further hearing will be held on 15 November and Eleanor Laws QC, defending Mendy, said there would be an application to dismiss the charges on that date.

The alleged attacks, on three different women including one under 18, are said to have happened at his home address on Withinlee Road in Prestbury, Cheshire.

Mendy was charged on 26 August with three counts of rape relating to an alleged incident in October 2020 and with the sexual assault of a woman in early January this year.

He is also charged with raping a woman last month.

The Premier League player was refused bail last month and is currently on remand at HMP Altcourse in Liverpool.

Mendy has played for City since 2017, when he joined from Monaco for a reported £52 million.

He was suspended by the club after being charged by police, pending an investigation.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to
    get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.

    I must say you have done a excellent job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.

    Superb Blog!

  4. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I
    was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

  6. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to

  9. I have been surfing online more than three hours lately, but I never

    sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all siteowners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did,the internet will probably be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
