a recent #french court case has sharpened the debate over the age of s****l consent and rape. this is the second recent case that highlights the normalize of #p********a currently taking place across #westernsociety.
in the most recent case, a jury at #meaux, near #paris, said last week that the prosecution failed to prove any of the four criteria required for a r**e conviction under french law – threat, violence, constraint or surprise.
the accused, a #capeverde citizen now aged 30, who has not been named, admitted to meeting the 11-year-old girl in the street where she was playing, taking her to the park and engaging in s****l intercourse, which he claims was consensual.
according to a report in le parisien newspaper:
prosecuted for r**e on minor under 15 years, the accused, a cape verdean today aged 30, was acquitted on tuesday evening by jurors of the assize court of seine-et-marne. at the hearing, the advocate general had required eight years of imprisonment, with a socio-judicial follow-up. on friday, the public prosecutor’s office of the paris court of appeal appealed this verdict. “until 15 years old, a child must be preserved. you can not get him sex. his consent is not informed, “says dominique laurens, the prosecutor meaux.
in the reasons for the judgment, the court explains that none of the elements of rape, namely, threat, violence, coercion or surprise, are established and there is doubt as to whether the accused had aware of coercing the one with whom he had sex. at no point in the verdict is there any mention of the age of the child. “my client is traumatized,” says her lawyer me laure habeneck. “in his defense, the accused referred to the #african heat (sic). it is to be hoped that this justification will not be at the root of the jury’s deep conviction. it appears from this decision that a s****l relationship between a 22-year-old man and an 11-year-old girl is normalized in our society.“ the girl, who is of congolese origin, was reportedly playing with her cousin when the man approached her and invited her for a walk in the park, according to le parisien. 🖐🏾more in comments👇🏾
