The affair could lend itself to laughter, if it were not so tragic. A Castrese had an appointment with the court to respond to the death threat against his wife issued the day of the installation of his anti-reconciliation bracelet.
Tuesday, August 1, the Albi court was to judge an unusual case. Brought from the Béziers remand center, a Castrese had to answer for a repeated death threat made by a person who had been a recidivist spouse.
The facts are simple. The 30-year-old imprisoned in December 2022 in Béziers, for acts of domestic violence in Castres, should have been released in June. However, the day of the installation of his anti-reconciliation bracelet, this one threatens to kill his ex-spouse. “Let’s take a big sentence as much to kill it. “A declaration which will be followed by others and which will lead him directly into police custody before he finds himself yesterday at the bar of the Albi court.
With nine mentions in his criminal record, the accused was not at his first attempt. In a relationship for seven years with his ex-girlfriend met on the street and father of a 14-year-old child, he could not stand the end of their relationship. Harassment, fake suicide attempt and death threats followed. Facts that logically led him to incarceration.
This did not, however, prevent him from repeating the threats during his detention, then on the day of the installation of his bracelet. A behavior that naturally worried the judge presiding over the hearing. “What is your limit? “, he even asks him point blank, clearly disturbing the prisoner who tried throughout the hearing to exculpate himself by evoking meaningless words. “MNow, do you understand that the more you say these things, the longer you stay in detention? »
An ex-spouse presents
A concern shared by his former companion present in court. “Moi, what I want is just peace”, she specifies through her lawyer. “If he really thinks about his threats, there is a real risk of dangerousness. And for himself To protect himself from this, the lawyer asked that he be prohibited from returning to the Tarn where his ex-spouse resides, after the end of his sentence.
On the side of his lawyer, the risk does not exist. This one evokes above all a man with a broken childhood, after a rape at seven years old and a passage in the street at his 16 years old. It also details the ascending phase of their life together before the first sentence in Castres. “These two supported each other. They have been through the worst and there has been real progress. The street is savagery. More legally, the lawyer doubts the materiality of the threats, detailing a sequence of words which would not have correctly transcribed the words heard.
Despite this defence, the court will decide according to the accusation. The 30-year-old is sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment, continued detention, a ban on carrying and possessing a weapon for five years and to appear in the Tarn for three years upon his release from prison.
