According to the girl, the soccer player stole her mobile phone and entered a room that was “opened with a fingerprint.” “I want my phone, I don’t want to have sex with you. I want to go,” he will tell her. “I promise, I just want to look at you. You still can’t go out,” the Manchester City player would have replied.
“I thought of stripping and at least I wouldn’t have anything to do with him. My body is very tense. It was very painful. I have never experienced anything like this. I told him ‘I’m not ashamed, I just don’t want to have sex with you,'” the girl continued.
Some words ignored by the defense: “You are too shy. Don’t tell anyone and you come here every night,” he insisted as if it was a “privilege” to have sex with him.
In May of this year, Mendy pleaded not guilty to nine counts of sex crimes which burdens him. Now, he can face a sentence in between 5 and 20 years in prison to finally come out guilty. Even with a possible life sentence.
