Through Writing Guérande
A 75-year-old man was sentenced on Tuesday January 17, 2023. Two carers complained about his touching, when they came to provide care to his wife at the couple’s home, in La Chapelle-Launay, a town located between Nantes and Saint-Nazaire.
” You say nothing “
“Do you recognize the facts? asks the president of the Saint-Nazaire criminal court. “Well, the gendarmes forced me,” replies the septuagenarian. The judge continues: “Did it happen? “, ” I say yes “. But what happened? Between June and August 2017 for one, December 30, 2019 for the other.
One of the young women explains that when he arrived, the septuagenarian gave her a kiss and then he hugged her, whispering to her: “You’re not saying anything”, and that he started again a second and a third time, stroking her to the buttocks, over her clothes. The assistant, now 36, spoke to her employer, who told her that she was the second to report such facts.
“I’m worn out”
At the helm, the man, cut like a mirrored wardrobe, declares:
“I ran my hand over his chest, I’m treating my wife after her stroke, I’m worn out. I’m ashamed of it. »
The president insists: “What is that called, sir? It’s called sexual assault.”
The septuagenarian does not show himself in his best light: “Ah well, should I go to prison then? I ask forgiveness, I apologize”.
The second victim, 28, says virtually the same things…
“The guilt is beyond doubt”
Absent, the victims are represented by Mr.e Pierre-Henri Marteret: “The guilt is beyond doubt, even if the defendant only recognizes half a word. The 30-year-old has already been the victim of sexual assault, and the consequences are heavy: seven months off work, dismissal, because she no longer wanted to return.
Eight-month suspended prison sentence
The youngest had asked not to go to this house again, where she would have been sent back. ” She resigned “.
The prosecutor regretted that the defendant “did not have the slightest word for the victims”. She was followed in her requisitions: eight months suspended prison sentence. Civil interests will be debated on May 25.
