IHe came out of the courtroom very, very angry, leaving four years of detention in custody. Not even a postponement on probation to force him to treat his alcoholism and his addiction. After 32 mentions in the criminal record, the court ended up giving up, eventually the prosecutor followed, also a little disillusioned. Four years closed for a series of car burglaries in two stages, in April.

“Explain to myself … I can not really remember. Alcohol, the substance mixed with. I know I had done a job. I accept the court’s verdict.” That was before it was pronounced. But at the immediate hearing on Monday afternoon, Elvis Pierdon, 43, no longer chose to exercise his right to silence.

As a minimum, he therefore admitted that he was well involved in the story that started, for the investigators on the night of May 12 in Saint-Genis-d’Hiersac. A Seat Ibiza drifted in through the window at Chez Titine, the rural multiple bistro. The manager slept upstairs. She stepped out to watch the car drive away and discover that the bar had moved and her vendor book had disappeared. Same night, same thing on Menuiserie 2000. The car and the driver, operating mask and blue cap on video to remove doubt and a prey of 7,197 euros.

The next day, the gendarmes almost arrested Elvis. He had just dropped the seat in the Roullet and stolen a Rover. He told them his name was Johnny Pierdon. They release the cap and the mask. No complaints had yet been lodged. Investigators then found the connection with other similar thefts, at the pharmacy and in Afflelou in Champniers. On May 31, Elvis was carefully picked up at the Super U in La Couronne.

I beg for pampering

And in court he confessed “that we do not really know what we are doing”but also that he had “need money to give to people who had promoted me” Drugs. ‘And yes, I am aware that the time in prison is going to be long. I ask for the indulgence of the court ”. And the forgiveness from the owner of the car who is on foot and is angry, and the forgiveness from the owner of the bar “which is very good”

“What to say?” Élisabeth Decencière-Ferrandière, the prosecutor, remarked with irritation that it was “For too long there has been talk of him, he has not questioned himself. He never took on the care responsibilities.”. The repetition drove the point home. Four years, dry, she suggested.

Only Chems-Eddine Belkaïd, his lawyer, was left to raise the issue “the usefulness of a sentence he does not understand”to assess it “reopening the prison door would not be enough to put an end to his actions”. Alone to hope “a mixed judgment, an enhanced duty of care”. In vain.

Six months for a revolver, released for domestic violence

Vincent M. did not come to attend his trial at the criminal court, immediately. Must have feared the prison fund. He had two months over his head, was the subject of a search warrant for a story of domestic violence. Like those who sent him to court on Monday. But Vincent M. would have heard to declare his release in the story of the ramparts which were blamed on him.
After reviewing the case, the chairman, Sébastien Filhouse, agreed. “We have a victim, not simple”. A young woman who, with the words also used by Vincent M., sees herself as “an ass plan” and who filed a complaint of violence between 11 and 13 May. Only at home, where he would have taken it badly for her to be with a friend. He would have put a cap on her, she would have intervened, would have taken some too.
Two days later, the young woman was in a bar in the center of Angoulême with friends, including the one who was at the first quarrel. Exchange of text messages. Vincent M. took it badly, he went upstairs to decide the story. It ended in a fight before he was thrown out of the establishment. She followed him, disappeared for a moment, came back and said she had been beaten. She would then have taken everyone to Vincent M. Once again it went wrong. no one saw anything, but the young woman would have been threatened with a revolver.
With 21 mentions in the record, Vincent M. got off to a bad start in terms of reputation. “Violent and jealous”, recalled the prosecutor. “But charged with violence against his companion, which he denies, and not for it against the boy”, was in turn surprised by Rachid Rahmani, Vincent M’s lawyer, a little confused by the young woman’s behavior. A confusion that won the court. Relax. But the search made it possible to find the revolver. So six months fixed.
