Franck Ribery, Karim Benzema acquitted on underage prostitute charges

French international Karim Benzema and Franck Ribery are cleared on charges of soliciting an underage prostitute.

Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema have been acquitted on charges of solicitation of an underage prostitute.

The France internationals had been accused of paying Zahia Dehar for sex in 2009, before her 16th birthday.

A trial got underway last summer, but the French court confirmed today that the charges have been dropped.

Dehar had claimed that neither player knew her real age at the time of the incident.
