Former Germany national football player Jérôme Boateng was convicted of bodily harm in his appeal process. The district court of Munich I imposed a fine of 120 per diem of 10,000 euros each, a total of 1.2 million euros. This would mean that Boateng would have a criminal record, unlike the lower court judgment. The 34-year-old can appeal again.
The court found it proved that Boateng hit, injured and insulted his then-partner on a joint Caribbean vacation in 2018. The 2014 world champion has already been convicted in two cases of bodily harm, in the first instance only in one case. Boateng’s supporters demanded an acquittal on Wednesday. They complained that his client had been harmed. Former Bayern player Boateng is currently under contract with Olympique Lyon.
