Christian Quesada will soon be back on parole.
The ex-champion of television games, convicted of child pornography, and imprisoned again last month for non-compliance with socio-judicial monitoring, should be released from prison on October 27, "or before" because "he can benefit from a reduction of sentence, "said the public prosecutor of Perpignan, Jean-David Cavaillé, on Thursday.
While he was on parole in the Pyrénées-Orientales where he now resides, Christian Quesada was once again imprisoned on September 27, because "he is not active in looking for work", specified the prosecutor.
The 58-year-old man was imprisoned on March 27, 2019 after hundreds of images and videos of minors undergoing rape and sexual assault, which he exchanged with other Internet users, were found on his computers.
A remission in 2021
In April 2020, he was sentenced to three years in prison by the Bourg-en-Bresse criminal court for corruption of minors, possession and dissemination of child pornography.
In March 2021, he was released, benefiting from a remission, and had to respect the obligations of his socio-judicial follow-up.
The Quesada affair had erupted with the complaint of a young underage girl who explained that she had dialogued on the Internet with a man posing as a boy who asked him to send him photos of her naked, and made him overtly sexual proposals. .
Nicknamed "the Professor", Christian Quesada had marked the viewers by chaining nearly 200 participations in the program "Les 12 Coups de midi" (TF1), for six months.
This allowed him to pocket 800,000 euros in earnings.
