She had maintained, via social networks, a relationship with French Manchester United striker Anthony Martial. Then set out to blackmail him. This Friday a young woman, who had used the same strategy with another athlete, was sentenced to eight months in prison suspended by the court of Nancy, we learned from a judicial source.
The criminal court of Nancy went beyond the requisitions of the public prosecutor François Perain who had asked for a six-month suspended sentence against this woman, who will also have to pay “one euro in damages” to the footballer.
Messages and intimate video exchanged
Anthony Martial was not the only athlete victim of this woman, explained François Perain. One of them, a basketball player from the France team, preferred to pay, added the same source. The football international filed a complaint in July 2019 against this woman who appeared on the Instagram social network as a model traveling around the world. In fact, she’s a 30-year-old unemployed RSA woman, living near Nancy.
Between 2018 and 2019, according to this woman, she and the footballer had regularly exchanged messages and especially intimate videos. The young woman had threatened to publish these images when the player sent her an SMS to put an end to the virtual story. “I have a lot of compromising photos, either you pay, or I throw everything to the press,” she was accused of having written.
During the hearing in October, the defendant’s lawyer had refuted the “attempted blackmail” and had, according to the Republican East, highlighted the absence of sender and date on the screenshot of the message presented by the prosecution.
This message materialized the attempted blackmail, on the other hand considered François Perain, who had also highlighted a fraud at the RSA. In this related aspect of the case, the court ruled in favor of the prosecution and ordered the confiscation of all the seals, namely a large number of luxury items seized from the home of this woman.
