same time,

Section 26 of the Madrid Provincial Court has processed the appeal filed by the footballer's legal representation

against the warrant to enter prison.

Lucas Hernández was sentenced to six months in prison for breaking the restraining order on his sentimental partner, with whom he went on a honeymoon despite the fact that both had distance measures against the other for a previous conviction for crimes of abuse in the family environment.

The footballer requested the suspension of the jail sentence, but the Criminal Court number 32 of Madrid denied it because he

has two convictions for injuries in the field of gender violence

, handed down by a court in Madrid and another in Móstoles .

The two sentences

The events took place in February 2017, when the rojiblanco youth squad, at that time Atlético's first team player,

and his girlfriend, Amelia de la Osa Lorente, argued violently on the street


A court in Madrid sentenced Hernández for a crime of injuries in the field of gender violence and forced both to 31 of community work and to be, at least, at a distance of 500 meters.

But in June of that same year the couple decided to skip the sentence and go on their honeymoon to Miami.

On their return, the police detained them at the Adolfo Suárez-Madrid Barajas airport and Hernández was brought to justice.

Not so his partner, who had not yet been notified of the sentence for the altercation in February.

In December 2019, already as a Bayern player,

the 35th Criminal Court of Madrid sentenced the footballer to six months in prison

for skipping the restraining order with that trip.

In the proven facts of this second conviction it is established that Hernández, “at 9:30 a.m. on June 13, 2017, aware of the prohibition to approach within 500 meters of his sentimental partner issued in conviction, fully in force and With full contempt for it, he was in the company of his girlfriend at the Adolfo Suárez-Barajas airport in Madrid, coming from Miami.

As it was the second final sentence on the side, the first being the crime of injuries from the fight, the court understood that he could not benefit from an eventual suspension of the sentence and that, therefore, Hernández must go to prison.

The court denied the commutation to work for the benefit of the Community proposed by the defense because he has not completed the 31 days of those jobs to which he was sentenced for the episode of the assault on his partner.

In legal terms, the player was not recognized as a "primary offender" as he already has a criminal record.
