The prosecution of Brest, in Finistère, announced this Friday, January 14, the indictment of a teacher for rape and sexual assault on a minor as well as possession of child pornography.
The man is suspected of having raped and sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student at his establishment, the Tristan-Corbière high school in Morlaix (Finistère). The facts would have occurred on a recurring basis between January and October 2020.
This 57-year-old French teacher was arrested Monday, January 10 at his home, before being taken into custody in the wake.
According to the Brest prosecutor’s office, the investigation was opened after the report, in December, of the principal of high school Michel-Favé “following revelations”. “The young woman had the courage to alert us and we immediately reported to the public prosecutor,” he told AFP.
The man would first have denied the accusations, before recognizing “consented” relations according to West France. Indicted, the 50-year-old is now under judicial control with a ban from exercising his profession.
