A 25-year-old man living in the Paris region was sentenced this Friday by the Annecy correctional court in Haute-Savoie to 5 years in prison, including two farms for acts of pedophilia.
Twelve victims filed a complaint
In 2017 and 2018, this animator and director of leisure centers and summer camps, among others at the MJC of the Romans in Annecy, delivered to sexual assaults on boys aged 9 to 11, in particular in La Clusaz and Thônes. 12 victims filed a complaint.
170,000 pornographic images
The man was also sentenced for recording and possessing child pornographic images. 170,000 pictures were found in his computer. Some of these photos and videos were taken by the adult himself during shower sessions and without the knowledge of his young victims.
Wearing an electronic bracelet
The two years firm will be carried out at home under electronic bracelet. The young man is also subjected to a order for treatment, a psycho-judicial follow-up for 7 years, the definitive ban on working with minors, and compensation for its victims. His name will be registered at FIJAIS, the file of perpetrators of sexual or violent offenses.
“I tried to do as little as possible”
At the hearing, the former host ended up asking forgiveness from all his victims and their families, several of whom were present. Even before the trial this Friday, the former host began to be accompanied by a psychiatrist and undergo treatment with chemical castration to suppress impulses of which he became aware in college, and a pedophilia that he said he knew was incurable. Since then I have tried “to do as little serious as possible“he said several times, and now”i have to learn to live with it“.
