Gérard Depardieu indicted for rape and sexual assault

Gérard Depardieu was charged with rape and sexual assault last December. AFP learned the news today.

Such as previously reported on enVedette, a young actress of nearly 20 years denounced the 72-year-old star to the authorities in August 2018. That summer, she was allegedly raped and assaulted twice by Gérard Depardieu, at home and at the hotel.

On this Tuesday, we learn that the actor was put on trial on December 16, 2020. This legal procedure underlines the presumption of innocence enjoyed by any person concerned by the action of justice.

Lawyer Gérard Depardieu, Me Hervé Témime, would have preferred that this story not be made public. He declares that his client ” totally disputes the facts with which he is accused ».

Basically, the media had reported that the alleged rapes and assaults had taken place during a theater practice. In reality, it is not. The actor would rather be a friend of the family of the young actress. A source also told AFP ” that there was absolutely nothing professional about it ».

For her part, the lawyer of the alleged victim asked for the respect of the private life and the intimacy of her client.
