Twelve years in prison for the caregiver who raped a patient at the Draveil hospital


The Essonne Assize Court in Évry-Courcouronnes delivered its verdict on Wednesday. This former caregiver at the Dupuytren hospital in Drave

After three days of trial before the Essonne Assize Court, the former caregiver who worked for more than forty years at the Dupuytren hospital in Draveil (Essonne) was found guilty of raping a vulnerable person in 2019.

The sexagenarian was sentenced to twelve years of criminal imprisonment with on his release a socio-judicial follow-up of seven years with obligation of care and prohibition to exercise his profession and any other trade putting him in contact with minors and the elderly.

In the event of non-compliance with these obligations upon his release, he risks an additional five years in prison.

The prosecution had requested a 14-year prison sentence.

Despite the overwhelming evidence and testimonies, the 64-year-old persisted in denying the facts to the end, multiplying the contradictory versions and evoking a "big plot".

At the bar of the court, the nurse who revealed the facts maintained her first statements.

Facing the jurors, she explained that she entered the room of this 79-year-old patient with psychiatric disorders and found her colleague "from the back, the pants below the ankles".

And facing him: the patient, naked, legs apart.

Caught in the act, the accused then asked him to keep it a secret.

When questioned, the now deceased patient confided that she had been raped four or five times by this man, whose DNA was found in her vagina.

Already surprised two months earlier in this room

He had already been surprised two months earlier in this patient's room.

The nurse had to force the door to get in because a chair had been pushed in front to block it.

She had seen her colleague come out of the toilet.

The victim was naked and his bed was raised.

The latter had claimed an urgent desire due to stomach aches.

He then explained that he had blocked the door because caregivers are not allowed to use the patient's toilets.

This elderly woman with psychiatric disorders was the most vulnerable in the service, explained a doctor to the psychiatrist who followed her at the bar.

“She was mute and you had to be very close to her for her to speak.

Some caregivers have never heard the sound of his voice.

And she suffered from near deafness.

The victim died six months after the events.

"I feel enormous guilt," said the doctor.

She was given to us to take care of and we injured her in the hospital.
