Lucas Hernandez has appealed against his Spanish prison sentence for breaching his restraining order.
The Bayern Munich man was sentenced to six months in prison for breaking a restraining order that forbid him from seeing or contacting his wife.
In 2017, Hernandez was accused of assaulting his wife, Amelia de la Osa Lorente. An incident that happened back in 2010.
They were both sentenced to 31 days of community service and were banned from meeting with or speaking to one another for six months.
However, in those six months, they went on a honeymoon to Miami together.
Hernandez was arrested at the airport on their return to Spain back in 2017.
He has now been sentenced to six months in prison for violating that order. Meanwhile, his wife hasn’t been sentenced because she wasn’t officially notified of the order at the time.
