Murder of Alexandra Cosson in Moréac: the attorney general requires 20 years of criminal imprisonment

A sentence of 20 years of criminal imprisonment, with a safety period of 15 years, was requested, this Thursday, May 30, 2024, against Pierre Palot, accused of the murder of Alexandra Cosson, on the night of May 11 September 12, 2020, in Moréac. For more than an hour, the general counsel, Elsa Casassa, took up point by point the elements of the file as well as those of the debates begun Tuesday afternoon. The magistrate insisted on the “seriousness” and the “brutality” of the facts, while pointing out the “complex personality” of the accused and the “inconsistencies” of his account.

“Justice must be done”

“I wonder,” she repeats several times about the behavior of the accused but also about the unfolding of the facts. “It’s Pierre Palot who decides what he wants to say.” And to sweep away a possible alteration of discernment during the second part of the murder of Alexandra Cosson, formulated by the psychiatrist the day before. The magistrate also speaks of “blinders” put on by Pierre Palot. It is not a monster that you are going to judge, but a man. Justice must be done “. In her requisitions, the attorney general also requested socio-judicial monitoring for a period of 5 years, a ban on appearing in Morbihan upon release from prison and a ban on possessing a weapon for 15 years.

“He didn’t hide”

For his part, Pierre Palot’s lawyer, Me Maxime Tessier, insisted on the consistencies between his client’s story and the experts’ analyses. For him, there is no doubt, the “key” is found in this alteration of discernment. “My client said it: he was a kind of automaton after the victim’s death.” Me Tessier then spoke of his “surprise” as to the security sentence requested by the attorney general, “not justified”, according to him. “We are not taking into account the work that was done by my client.” The council also drew a parallel with another case of femicide, that of Jonathan Daval, whose security sentence was lower than that requested. “My client did not hide and did not hide anything.” The last to speak, Pierre Palot turned to Alexandra Cosson’s family to apologize. ” I’m sorry “.
