He swore that he no longer used cannabis and that he wanted more than anything to be with his children.
Arguments, developed in detail by his lawyer, which apparently hit the mark.
After two months of detention in the prison of Health in Paris, the rapper Mister You, 37, has already obtained an adjustment of sentence.
On Monday, a capital sentence enforcement judge accepted his conditional release.
He will therefore leave his cell on Wednesday to join his partner and his children in Le Mans (Sarthe) and will have to stay there under an electronic bracelet.
Younès Latifi, the real name of the artist from Belleville, was arrested on July 20 at Orly airport while he was going on vacation with his six-year-old son.
He was unaware that a search file had been issued against him.
In March 2021, he was sentenced by the Paris Court of Appeal to 24 months in prison for having promoted in February 2019 on social networks one of the biggest deal points in Île-de-France in Villejuif (Val-de-Marne).
A penalty a priori suitable for conversion.
Except that when the prosecution sends a letter to the rapper to specifically discuss this sentence adjustment, no response from the person concerned.
Hence this research file and this interpellation.
Mister You ensures, for his part, that he never received this famous letter.
In short, direction Health.
"His place is with his family and the recording studios", according to his lawyer Robin Binsard
His lawyer then urgently filed a request for adjustment of sentence.
An audience is very quickly found at the start of the school year.
Despite an unfavorable opinion from the prosecution, the release under electronic bracelet is accepted.
"It's an irreproachable decision in terms of law, rejoices Robin Binsard, the rapper's lawyer.
This man has no place in prison.
His place is with his family, and in the recording studios.
In May 2021, Younès Latifi had already narrowly escaped prison.
His sentence of six months in prison pronounced at first instance for having tried to buy his driving license had finally resulted on appeal in a simple fine of 10,000 euros.
