14 years in prison incurred

The investigating judge dismissed the artist for involuntary injuries resulting in total incapacity for work of more than and less than three months, wrote the prosecutor, without repeating the prosecution’s requests in favor of a trial for homicide and involuntary injuries.

Pierre Palmade faces fourteen years in prison and a fine of 200,000 euros.

On February 10, 2023, on a road in the south of Seine-et-Marne, Pierre Palmade got behind the wheel after three days of “partying” without sleep and frenzied drug consumption. On a local road, he hit a Renault Megane in which three members of the same family were present: a 38-year-old man, his six-year-old son and his 27-year-old sister-in-law, who were seriously injured.

The epilogue of three days of “party”

The collision also caused the in utero loss of a six-month-old female fetus. Weighing 1.09 kg, the baby was “indisputably viable” before the accident, according to a medical expertise commissioned by the courts. If the qualification of “involuntary manslaughter” had been retained, the procedure would have been the subject of a thorny legal debate.

According to consistent case law from the Court of Cassation, which has ruled on similar cases of road accidents, a child who has not been born does not exist as a person. A fetus therefore has no legal existence and its death cannot therefore constitute involuntary homicide for the motorist involved.

Pierre Palmade is a repeat offender due to a conviction in 2019 for drug use. An accidentology expertise “attributes exclusively the cause of the accident” to him.
