History schoolgirl Julie: pedophile scandal, forever changed FrancePictolic
This terrible story began in 2008, when 13-year-old French schoolgirl Julie lost the lesson consciousness. The child called the paramedics, the functions of which in the country is vested in the fire. They came and helped, but this case was a real nightmare, Julie forever changed and impacted the lives of millions of Frenchmen.
Now Julie 25 years, but the events of 12 years ago, she still remembers with difficulty. In the day when she became ill at school, one of the firefighters, 20-year-old Pierre, wrote down the phone number of the child, taking him from the school medical records. After that, he started to send schoolgirl unambiguous message.
Between Julie and Pierre struck up a friendship during which the man was insistent that the girl undressed in front of the webcam. Naive schoolgirl, not expecting the fire – human noble profession, some kind of trick, agreed. But when Pierre got the record, his affection for Julie immediately evaporated. He began to blackmail the girl, threatening to distribute intimate video among her friends and family when she refuses to comply with its requirements.
Against these threats, Julie started having panic attacks and developed social anxiety. Painful the girl's condition has led to the fact that her parents began to call the paramedics when the daughter was especially worsened. But the call came the same pier with his team or his colleagues that he had to tell about Julie and give her the phone. Because of the lousy hints from the fire to the school was getting worse and no one was able to understand the causes of this phenomenon.
Mother, Julie was glad that firefighters take care of her mentally unstable daughter, and in gratitude even bake them a pie. She even could not imagine why her baby was organized by the patronage of the older boys in the form of fire. In January 2009, Pierre came home to Julie and the girl's mother asked him to stay with her daughter until she left. Firefighter took advantage of the moment and raped the teenager.
Later mother, Julie said that, in her opinion, Pierre was the last person in the world who would have been capable of this terrible misdeed. But as it turned out, the villain could afford more than that. In November 2009, Pierre met Julie after school, brought home and raped again. In this time, he came to visit two firefighters who also has sexual intercourse with a minor.
Then came the terrible fire started seeing Julie for sex regularly, thereby threatening rash made video. For two years they raped a schoolgirl 130 times. Girl made 16 attempts to commit suicide, it was put on the account of a psychiatrist and was forced to take special medication for depression. In 2010, Julie found the strength to end it – she refused to take pills and told his mother all.
They immediately went to the police about the gang rape of minors. The investigation in this case began only six months later, and it lasted as long as 8 years. In the status of suspects was only Pierre and two boys who participated in the gang rape. 17 pedophiles in the form took on the responsibility, so to prove their involvement in the crimes was not possible.
During the investigation, two suspects admitted that they had participated in group sex with Julie, another said that he had committed a sexual act with her in the toilet stall at a psychiatric clinic, where she was examined. But one argued that it was not rape, but consensual sex. On ships the girl repeated over and over that she was being blackmailed, threatened her, threatened her, but the evidence presented could not.
Here we must digress and tell you about the peculiarities of the legislation of France. In this country there is no such thing as the age of consent and to accuse someone of committing violent acts against a minor, you need to provide proof that the child was forced to have sexual intercourse. Julie had no such evidence, because she was just a scared kid.
In the end, Pierre and his two friends accused only of "penetrating sexual actions by mutual consent with a person under 15 years of age." Upon learning that the case was reclassified and Julie tried again to take her own life and saved her again. She knew that criminals can get away with and her nightmare will never end.
In France, considered to be an offence of sexual relations with children under the age of 18 years, but due to the lack of the concept of "age of consent," sexual intercourse with a minor, without evidence of violence, threatens criminals only 7 years of imprisonment. If bullying is proven, then the time is immediately increased to 20 years.
In the case of Julie present investigation evidence forced sex failed and pedophiles was at a minimum. The victim declared the young whore who agreed to have sex with older men, and then they ruined her career and life.
Firefighters were good lawyers that twisted all the facts in favor of the wards, starting with that fateful broadcast in front of a webcam. Everything was served like Julie herself stripped online to seduce Pierre, and then dragged him and the other "good guys" in the story.
The verdict of the court in which the villains got off with minimal punishment, angered the French. They took to the streets with protests, and the network began an indefinite flashmob #JusticePourJulie (#of Spravedlivosti). The resonance was so serious that in February 2021, the French Senate approved the age of consent is 13, and the Association for the protection of children considered him too young and demanded a revision in a big way.
In the end, the decision was revised, and the National Assembly on 15 March 2021 in the first day of deliberations in the first reading adopted the age of sexual consent is 15 years. The Minister of justice of France Eric DuPont-Moretti on this occasion, made a statement in which he said that now none of the adults can enjoy the consent of a child to commit a heinous crime to evade responsibility.
As for Julie, she did not manage to achieve justice and to prove that her two years raped by adult men, taking advantage of her fright, and his official position. But her case has affected the laws of France and has prevented thousands of other similar situations.
In recent years, many countries are reviewing the laws relating to sexual offenses against minors. Not so long ago made the decision to raise the age of consent in China, where the problem of the punishment of the pedophiles and rapists relevant since ancient times.
