“A toxic relationship”: The term has become very common in the Compiègne courtroom. As noted by defense lawyers as well as the prosecution, this seems to be the best feature of the number of domestic violence cases that have failed in court. The latest is valuable to 32-year-old Antoine Villett and 35-year-old Nina Lecomte for appearing this Tuesday, June 7th.
It was in June 2021 that two lovers met, one and the other took a drink. Several months followed a life together – at the end of which, last April, Antoine was condemned for the violence against Nina. He was then placed in a foster home and was not allowed to come in contact with her. However, prosecutor Marie-Celine Lorisz reminded us during her submission, “The two continue to maintain a bond.”
An end before the electronic bracelet

The next day, Nina – a mother of two and whose criminal record has led to numerous convictions, especially for violence against a wife – will have to wear an electronic bracelet, which will prevent her from making her lover as happy as she is from now on. . That evening, the couple longs to treat themselves to one last evening. Anthony and Nina “Sparrow feast” – Sprinkle them with whiskey. The couple then go to sleep in the car of Landscape Gardener, who is also the father of a 12-year-old child whom he no longer sees. The rest of the evening is still confused: it seems that Antoine wanted to wake Nina, and she punched him in the shoulder in response. Still, an argument broke out between the two drunken lovebirds. Mutual blows are struck. At 9:30 pm, Gendermass is called by Nina – who claims to be a victim of Antoine’s violence. The young woman (a resident of RSA and a mother of two, both set up) is crying in the middle of the street and she seems completely lost when people of the opposite sex arrive at the scene. But Antoine Willett resigned long ago; He will not be held in police custody until two days later, June 2, before he is finally brought to court for “repeating the violence against a wife.”
The two defendants said “we risked seeing one of them before the excise court”.
