Court of Assizes of Eure-et-Loir: the accused sentenced to ten years of criminal imprisonment

Consensual relationship? Rape? This is the whole issue of the trial, before the Assize Court of Eure-et-Loir, which began Tuesday in Chartres. Cheik Guèye, a 24-year-old pimp, is accused of the rape of one of his young “proteges” who was 15 years old at the time of the facts which would date back to June 5, 2019. The scene would have taken place in the car of this resident of Maine-et-Loire, in a small path, near the campsite near Les Herbiers (Maine-et-Loire).
“I did not rape her,” the accused continued to support throughout his trial.

Pomme Durand, the general counsel, is of the opposite opinion. Recalling that other very young women had also declared that they had been raped by this man – files closed without further action, either for lack of evidence or because the victims did not file a complaint – the magistrate describes a man “who uses sexuality to impose his power”.

“He’s far from the ideal son-in-law, but I’m not asking you to love him”

“For him, rape is inflicting a punishment,” she continues. “The girl’s ripped panties is not a sign of consent. For her, Cheik Guèye “is a violent and aggressive parasite”. At the end of its requisitions, Pomme Durand requests sixteen years of criminal imprisonment against the accused.
“In this case, there are gray areas,” retorts Master Sema Akman, from the Paris Bar. Addressing the jurors, the defense lawyer says to them: “He is far from being the ideal son-in-law, but I am not asking you to love him. I ask you to be fair. His guilt is far from obvious. »

Same story on the side of the other defense lawyer. In a heated argument, Adrien Gabeaud, also from the capital, believes “that the presumption of innocence is undermined by the reading of his criminal record. It is not because one is a violent pimp that one is a rapist, ”advances the lawyer. “There is no evidence of the victim’s non-consent in this case. When nothing is proven, we acquit. Appeal to your intimate conviction, not your intimate opinion! »
