KARIM BENZEMA scored and then signed autographs for a young turf invader just hours after he was found guilty of sex tape conspiracy.
The French striker has today found guilty of a sex tape blackmail conspiracy targeted his former teammate in France Mathieu Valbuena.
But Real Madrid ace, 33, escaped prison when he was given a suspended sentence by a court in Versailles, near Paris.
He was also fined £63,000 after being found guilty of being complicit in conspiracy to extort money.
Prosecutors said Benzema are working with a gang to convince former France midfielder Valbuena, now 37, to hand over the cash.
Four co-accusers – all old friends of Benzema’s – found guilty of attempted extortion.
However, the former Lyon man remained in Real Madrid’s starting XI tonight and helped his club progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the 25th consecutive season after a comfortable 3- 0 before Sheriff.
David Alaba, Toni Kroos and Benzema scored to secure the Spanish powerhouse a place in the round of 16 with one game left in Group D.

As a result, Sheriff eliminated Sheriff, the Moldovan league club that made their debut in the group stage and who had previously stunned Madrid with a win in the Spanish capital in their first match.
Madrid, after consecutive wins against Shakhtar, dominated from the start against Sheriff, controlling the ball and creating the most significant scoring opportunities.
Alaba put Madrid ahead with a free-kick that knocked out the defender before going into the net in the 30th minute.
Kroos added another goal in first-half injury time with a shot from just outside the box that narrowly missed the post.
Benzema, who soon conceded the goal for offside, scored the third with a strike in the 55th minute.
He was then confronted by a young fan who had stormed onto the pitch.
The child gave the pen and paper to Benzema, and the veteran duly signed it for the child’s amusement.
