“He stole their innocence”, the rapist father sentenced to 17 years in prison

“The court sentences you to seventeen years of criminal imprisonment. » A verdict, pronounced Wednesday May 15 by the president of the Deux-Sèvres criminal court, which sounds like a relief after three days of trial. For the victims, first of all, of the man now officially described as a rapist. Between 2011 and 2021, he sexually abused his adopted daughter, but also his daughter, in their childhood bedroom, and sometimes daily.

He also raped his niece by marriage when she came to his house for the holidays. Three little girls at the time of these events: “He stole their innocence, the carefreeness of those they were supposed to call daddy,” argued Me Sandrine Gaboriaud, lawyer for the accused’s daughters, in a powerful pleading, a few hours before the verdict. “They didn’t ask for anything, they had their lives ahead of them. However, they both tried to put an end to it. »

“He himself said he was indefensible”

The victims present at the hearing did not all have the strength to speak about the horror they experienced. However, they have not stopped supporting each other. “Their lives can still be rebuilt, wants to positive their lawyer. This trial, and the sentence that you will impose on the accused, will be the first stone in this slow reconstruction. »

She too is a victim. The accused’s first wife did not want to become a civil party in the trial. But on Tuesday, on the second day of the hearing, his testimony changed everything. “She finally authorized herself to use her rights, those of a direct victim of rape,” underlined Me Céline Le Drogo, called at the last minute to defend her. And if the accused had admitted all of his actions against minors, he contested forced sexual relations with his ex-wife. “After a while, she said no. That’s clear enough. »

“Father and executioner”this is how he was described by the victims’ lawyer, “perpetrator of repetitive and perverse acts”, according to the general counsel. In her requisitions, Anne Laparra found “worrisome”, the absence of a break in the accused’s behavior “who remains stable and thoughtful, never in emotion”. She requested seventeen years of criminal imprisonment against him.

Ensuring the defense of an incestuous rapist, a difficult position for Me Julie Adenot. “When reading his custody hearings, I felt disgust at these abominable facts. » But the lawyer will still plead for the one who said himself “indefensible”. She recalls hearing from her sister the day before, who indicated that she had received an unsuitable education from her parents. “When he was a child, the only value of the family was work, he did not learn empathy, feeling the emotions of others. » She wants to greet “evolution” of his client “thanks to the care and the electroshock of the trial”.

Beyond the sentence of seventeen years of imprisonment, the convicted person will have to receive treatment for ten years after his release, and will be prohibited from being around the victims, just like any minor.
