Premier League footballer charged with raping schoolgirl in France

A Premier League footballer has been ordered to stand trial in France on charges of raping a teenage girl.

The unnamed 23-year-old is now on bail along with his 25-year-old cousin for the alleged attack, which occurred in Nimes during July of 2012, according to United Kingdom outlet The Telegraph.

The 23-year-old initially denied having sex with the girl, who was 15 at the time, but changed his story after being presented with evidence and then reportedly admitted to lying so that he wouldn't upset his girlfriend.

The incident is said to have taken place in Nimes when the victim was 15 years old in July 2012, and she has since made clear to police that she was forced into sexual activity with two men. Neither is French, but they were on holiday together at a campsite in Aigues-Mortes.

Dustin Johnson, Paulina Gretzky still together despite cheating rumor
The rumor is that Gretzky and Johnson have split up and it may have been caused by golf Socialite Yassie Safai . We all know she has an awesome Instagram account , but a few things have changed on her account recently.

At first the footballer denied having sex with the girl.

The ongoing case will have no immediate impact on the player's football career, according to the report.

Friends found her crying just before 6am the next morning, when she described the footballer as "pretentious and a b--".

Both defendants now claim they had consensual sex with the complainant and also thought she was older than 15.
