The 43-year-old defendant beat his wife on the night of Nov. 4 to 5. She comes to pick him up from a friend, where he gets drunk. He offers a promiscuity relationship with this girlfriend, which she refuses. He “loosens” (his expression), once back in the marriage bed. Shot in the dark and “into the void” (always his description), which, however, hit the bull several times.
” I replied [sic] that night, I should not have, ”he testified in court. “I simply feel like I’ve been a victim of continuous humiliation for years. On paper, I’m the bad guy. But today my daughters want to live with me. She arrived at my friend’s house and she said, ‘Now you’re going home. “. That and the accumulation of months I could not bear.”
To hear it, he would have just fluttered his wings like a butterfly during a quarrel, but it’s not you saw the pictures, it’s a beating
The civil party, for its part, manages with difficulty to comment on facts. She wrote a short text to facilitate the transfer of her message to the bar. It boils down to an observation, “I was not aware of the grip early enough”, and a request, the installation of an anti-reconciliation bracelet.
“Between a father who wears beautifully and a mother who is only a shadow of herself, the children have chosen the father,” the victim’s lawyer laments. Me, Vincent Billecoq, condemns a violent man who “to hear him, would have just fluttered his wings like a butterfly during a quarrel, but it’s not that you’ve seen the pictures, it’s a beating”.
He keeps talking about respect while he is the one who drinks, who tries to impose a sexual relationship between his wife and a friend, and who beats her
“He keeps talking about respect,” said the defendant’s deputy prosecutor, Axel Schneider, “while it’s him who drinks, who tries to impose a sexual relationship between his wife and a friend, and who strikes.” that the prosecution erred in not organizing an immediate appearance in this “caricature” file and in not removing the respondent from the marital home.
“He did not even obey his judicial control [il a repris contact avec son épouse] and he comes to tell us that it is Madame who is wrong … ”, irritates Axel Schneider, for whom a sentence with a fixed part is required: two years’ imprisonment, including eighteen months probation.
Installing an anti-voting bracelet
“Everything is ambivalent in this case,” Me Philippe Gallon said in defense. “There was a lot of love, a love that over time became the archetype of the toxic situation. Where did the poison come from? In this question, the lawyer follows his client’s line: “His wife is a victim”. A victim, not the victim.
The court handed down a sentence of two years’ imprisonment fully accompanied by a suspended prison sentence. The defendant no longer has the right to contact his wife or to appear in the town where she has resided since their separation. Equipped with an anti-reconciliation bracelet for a year, he must be at least 3 km from her at all times. Otherwise, he actually risks serving the two-year detention.
