Four other girls are also summoned before the juvenile judge for complicity in violence by "videolynching", while a girl and a boy will have to appear before the prosecutor's delegate for harassment. According to the academic director of the Tarn Marie-Claire Duprat, the victim initially gave himself up to "student ambassadors", who warned the management of the establishment "who reacted immediately, since they are very reactive, very vigilant, on these subjects".
