Death of Dorian: the Assize Court of Côtes-d’Armor delivers a lenient verdict – Bretagne



Amazement, tears and anger ran through the bench of the civil parties, this Friday, when the verdict was announced. It was a little after 5:30 p.m. and the president was beginning to read the decision of the assize court. It is radically different from that made in Rennes, a year earlier, by the court of Ille-et-Vilaine. This time, the Costa Rican jurors did not retain the homicidal intent.

Twelve years in prison

Four defendants are sentenced for mortal blows causing death without intention to give it. Sacha Réthoré, who admitted having hit Dorian on the Boulevard de la Tour d’Auvergne, saw his sentence reduced to twelve years’ imprisonment, three less than at first instance. Thomas Goldschild receives six years in prison, against ten at first instance. Alexis Pesneau and Guillaume Clavreul, the two students who had joined the quarry, were sentenced to five years in prison, one of which was suspended, instead of the thirteen and ten years pronounced in Rennes. My Pineau and Lahaie, defenders of Alexis Pesneau, did not wish to comment on the verdict, “out of respect for the pain of the civil parties”.

Defendant acquitted in Dorian’s death

Stanislas Réthoré, who was fighting with Kevin Huruguen, Dorian’s friend, who had managed to take refuge in the nightclub before the deluge of blows, is acquitted for the death of the young man. He was sentenced to three years in prison, one of which was suspended, for intentional violence in a meeting. He was to be released from remand this Friday evening.

The motivations of the Assize Court will soon be given to the lawyers. They take up seven pages. We already guess, in view of the sentences pronounced, that she distinguishes two scenes in the violence which led to the death of Dorian: the first, in the Passage du Couëdic, at the gable end of the discotheque, and a second, 70 meters further, on the boulevard de la Tour d’Auvergne, where Dorian was found in cardiac arrest.

“Feeling of disgust”

“Dorian died for nothing. We knew it wouldn’t give us back our son, but there, the lies saved the defendants. Let them continue to lie, to agree together, to make scenarios… Unfortunately, there will be more and more aggressions, ”was indignant, tearful, Carine Servain, mother of Dorian Guéméné.

His father, Philippe Guéméné, was even more lapidary: “Justice sends a strong signal to young people: we kill someone in a meeting, we lie, we get along and we don’t risk much! The Assize Court of Rennes had rendered an exemplary verdict. There, it’s just the opposite. We are very disappointed, but above all, misunderstanding dominates. For my 24 year old son who will never be there again, it’s great! “, asserts Philippe Guéméné, evoking “an impression of disgust”.

” Roller coasters “

Me Thierry Fillion, counsel for the civil parties, had the difficult task of explaining the decision to his clients. “We had tried to prepare them for a different decision. What is very difficult for them is the roller coaster. In Rennes, they heard low requisitions and a harsh verdict. In Saint-Brieuc, average requisitions and a verdict which they consider extremely lenient. The homicidal intention was not retained. There is a problem of evidence that may explain this decision. I hope they will be able to tell themselves that justice is still past. »
