Teo and Juliette met recently in the office of the examining magistrate to explain the rapes alleged against the former student of Sciences po Toulouse.
Teo* kept asking for it, it finally happened. The investigating judge in charge of the rape charges allegedly committed by this 23-year-old young man in 2018 was able to proceed with a confrontation between his accuser and him in his Toulouse office in early December.
The affair broke out in February 2021 when Juliette, 21, a second-year student at Sciences po Toulouse, posted a long letter on social networks. She says she was raped in 2018, when she was in first grade, by one of her classmates.
“These words are hard to pronounce, almost impossible to write. Frozen forever on paper, they take on all their meaning and the horror that accompanies it. I have been raped”, she writes. The hashtag #sciencesporc is going viral. She complains against Teo who is indicted for “violating”. Despite requisitions for placement in detention, the student is left free under judicial supervision. He denies refined.
In November 2021, after the testimony of Juliette’s confidante who exonerates him and describes agreed reports, the investigating judge had put an end to the indictment of the young man. He has since been on assisted witness status. It is in this context that assisted by his lawyers, Mes Séverine Bouchaib and Julien Aubry, he was confronted with his accuser. A confrontation that she had refused during police custody and then, later in the procedure, even by videoconference.
Cleared by the Institute of Political Studies
“We weren’t sure she would come, sum up Teo’s lawyers. We hadn’t stopped asking for her. The investigating judge took over all the elements of the file.” Their meeting, their sexual relations, the media coverage by Juliette of this affair… The two students had to answer specific questions for more than four hours. “It emerges that there are no elements that could suggest either a rape or an influence, judged the lawyers. We have noted approximations or even contradictions in his remarks.”
This last act puts an end to the investigation. The judge should rule, in the coming weeks, on the long-awaited dismissal by Teo, now a graduate of Sciences po, who wishes to embark on active life and turn the page on Juliette. The Institute of Political Studies had taken the lead by convening a disciplinary committee in November 2021, out of place in Bordeaux. Teo had been cleared by the administration.
