A little over a month after saying his regrets at the bar of the court, Bruno is fixed on his fate. Last October, on departmental 20 near Chorey-les-Beaune, this 32-year-old second-hand dealer crashed into a car that was coming in front of him while driving his van. A 23-year-old woman was killed in this accident, and her two passengers injured. The investigation revealed that the man was driving with 2.10 grams in his blood.
The Dijon court sentenced him to 2 years in prison including one year of probation. His driving license is canceled and Bruno has forbidden to retake it in the next 5 years. At this number, his next vehicle will also have to be equipped with an “alcohol test-immobiliser” system. This family man also has theobligation to follow psychological care and treat his addiction to alcohol.
Compensation for “injury to affection”
The person responsible for the accident must also pay a total of 109,000 euros under the title of “prejudice of affection” to the parents and relatives of Justine, the 23-year-old young woman who died in the accident.
During his indictment, the prosecutor had claimed 4 years in prison, 2 of which were firm. Maître Aurélie Roques, Bruno’s lawyer, indicates that her client should not appeal.
