Tense atmosphere this Wednesday before the Toulouse Criminal Court. A man has been sentenced to three and a half years in prison for having disfigured a 16-year-old teenager on the background of drug trafficking.
A “small” disfigured. Kalashnikov bullets in the mailbox and impacts on the door of the stabber’s mother. Tense atmosphere since the end of May between the districts of Izards and Bellefontaine in Toulouse. It all starts the night of May 21. A car approaches, around 12:30 a.m., a group of young people at the foot of a block known to be a deal point for the Izards.
The goal of its occupants, to buy cylinders of laughing gas. But things degenerate. The “little one”, 16, who is about to deal would have “spoken badly”. Then the car turns around. “Someone comes back to him and pulls a knife out of his pocket, recounts the president at the hearing of immediate comparisons this Wednesday in a tense atmosphere. He punches him hard in the face.” The teenager is slashed deeply for 15 cm from the base of the nose to the ear. “He had a machete, he would have cut me”, assures the defendant, 19, who refuses to say who is with him that evening: “It will make me pass for a balance”.
A complaint is filed and a search form induced against the suspect identified just after the facts. Intimidation attempts from both sides ensue. The man was finally arrested this Sunday during a simple check in Bellefontaine where he lives. Placed in police custody, he raped three police officers.
At the helm, he apologizes for all the facts. “My mother’s life, I am disgusted for the little one”.
The prosecutor asks for five years in prison, four of which are firm. “The victim is not there, she is scared to death. He will be one of the scarred ones with internal injuries that will be significant. For the defense, Me Jessica Guy instills doubt. “I’m not sure we know the truth in this case. On the side of the victim, there is a name known recurrently in the settling of scores… ”The court condemns him in December of the requisitions to three and a half years in prison and 18 months of probation.
