It is a “somewhat special case” which was immediately judged by right from Man’s (Sarthe) on Friday, August 5, 2022.
The defendant, 24, blonde, with very fine features, graceful, elegantly dressed, was charged with having on August 1, 2022 at about 1:00 a.m. Sable-sur-Sarthe, hit his former companion with his vehicle, in which their two children were!
“I had my legs under the car”
That night, after pushing her former companion in the back, the young woman verbally attacks him. However, he does not have the right to contact her with a view to a conviction for violence against her.
Soon after, she hit him at the wheel of his car before running away.
To the investigators, the victim says: “The car came at me, when I turned my head, I saw that I did not have time to avoid it”. He continues “I had my legs under the car”.
However, the young man went out of his way to clarify that his former companion did not black out at 100 or 50 km/h on him: “I think she had to brake at the last moment”.
In court, the young woman gave a different version than that of her two submissions.
She explained that she was in an “ambiguous” relationship with her former companion and that they were together in the afternoon with the facts… Which the boy strongly disputes, saying that he is being harassed by his former companion, who already called 1,600 times!
The man said he had filed a handrail at the gendarmerie against his former companion: “Each time she refuses to start a new life”.
“Why didn’t you stop?”
“Why didn’t you stop?” the court president asked the defendant.
“I was afraid he would hit me,” answered the young woman shyly.
“We cannot say that he was burning to hit you,” the president pointed out to him, adding: “I remind you that the witnesses are talking about a big boom, you were not at a speed near a stop, it is not possible that you haven’t seen it. That’s what the investigators say.”
“We are in a play about a pathological couple”
Me Linda Medjber, the victim’s lawyer, recalled the conflicting versions of the accused. She put forward the requalification: All aggravating circumstances were not retained.
The lawyer asked for a civil interest referral to determine the compensation for her client.
In his indictment, the prosecutor has requested a mixed sentence of 18 months in prison, in particular 10 months in prison with a suspended sentence of two years and 8 months in prison under an electronic bracelet.
“There are several things that have not been said in my opinion in this case,” said Me Jennifer Neveu, the defendant’s lawyer. “You have part of the story, but you don’t have everything (…) we’re in a show about a pathological couple (…) I think she’s just out of breath”, she continued… Not without to regret that we did not take advantage, in particular, of the geolocation of phones, which would have made it possible to accredit his client’s statements. She asked for an appropriate punishment for the latter.
18 months imprisonment
The young woman, who was found guilty of the charges against her, was sentenced to 18 months in prison with a suspended sentence of 2 years.
In addition, she is prohibited from coming into contact with her former companion, duty of care and work and must not carry a weapon for 5 years.
