Benzema and Ribery to stand trial

France internationals Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema are set to face trial for allegedly soliciting an underage prostitute.

The pair will face the charges along with eight others after judicial papers were submitted by investigating magistrate Andre Dando this week. According to reports some of the defendants will be prosecuted for "aggravated pimping''.

The long-running case began in 2010 when Zahia Dehar claimed Real Madrid striker Benzema paid for sex with her in 2008, when she was 16. Dehar also alleged Ribery flew her to Munich for sex a year later.

Prostitution is not illegal in France, however, it is with persons aged under 18.

She was 16? Who cares. Surprised the consenting age in FRANCE, of all places, isn't lower.
