At the helm, Jean-Marc Morandini, 57, recognized "recklessness" but defended himself by invoking in particular a form of "humor".

Prosecuted for "corruption of minors" on three teenagers between 2009 and 2016, TV host Jean-Marc Morandini was sentenced on Monday to one year in prison with probationary suspension of 2 years for "corruption of minors".

Absent from court on Monday, he was found "guilty of all the charges against him".

The investigating judge pronounced "an obligation of care" so that Jean-Marc Morandini understands his "transgressive acts", without "real questioning" of his behavior.

His lawyers confirm his intention to appeal the court's decision.

Alarmed by his “lack of awareness”, the prosecution had requested against the star host of CNews a year in prison suspended during the trial at the end of October.

His lawyers had pleaded for release, castigating a file built on "very fluctuating statements" and parasitized by a supposed "media lynching".

Grave messages to teenagers

This PAF figure had to respond to messages sent to two 15-year-olds, in 2013 and 2015-2016, which consisted for one of evoking sexual scenarios and, for the second, of asking him to send a photo of stripped him.

Came to testify at the bar, this young man challenged any trace of "humor" in these exchanges which he said he maintained because he "wanted to work in the media".

A cast in the form of a “trap”

Jean-Marc Morandini, who passed through Europe 1 in particular, had also appeared for having asked Clément (first name changed), 16, to undress and masturbate at his home in 2009 during an audition for a remake project of an American film, which never saw the light of day.

The plaintiff's lawyer, Me Francis Szpiner, denounced a casting in the form of a "trap", while Jean-Marc Morandini disputed the facts.

"It couldn't have happened like that," he said.

A second trial awaits Jean-Marc Morandini in the coming months for the "sexual harassment" of an actor, an adult, as part of a casting for an erotic web-series.
