Justice, Sète, Carcassonne
Charles Pujol had not supported the noise. He was sentenced Friday to thirty years for two murders and two attempts, which occurred on December 1, 2012 in Sète.
Charles Pujol did not flinch at the utterance of the verdict, Friday, at the sitting of the Aude. He was sentenced to thirty years for two murders and two attempts, which occurred on December 1, 2012 in Sète. However, the court upheld the alteration of discernment, of the fifty-year-old, depressed and under medication. It has suddenly been sentenced to the maximum sentence because of his state. In the end, this sentence is identical to that imposed in the Hérault department in 2016.
For five days, the killing of Sète has been unraveled. It appeared that the victims were not too noisy that evening, when after having shared a macaronade, they have sung karaoke the Hallyday and the Aznavour. Charles Pujol, 56-year-old psycho loner, fond of arms, could not bear to be woken up by the noise : he had to get up early for his work. He went to look for an automatic pistol, killing two neighbors and injuring two others. And in two trials, he has never been able to explain its passage to the act if it is not a confused state, leaving fasting of explanation to the victims.
“We had to relive those family moments of extreme pain and, in the end, one has the impression that he feels nothing, neither the pain of his victims, nor to be locked up”, respond to My Darrigade and Bertrand, to the interests of the relatives of Michel Pepe and Fabrice Reilles, the two deceased, two cousins “inseparable, almost brothers of the peninsula”.
Me Florent, Saint-Julien, the lawyer of two survivors recalled “the additional weight of the guilt” of not intervening to protect their friends. And the dean Martin, for the couple Amri, injured survivors, did not believe in the alteration of the accused, “cowardice” to discard.
The demon has not taken hold of Charles Pujol ! It is his psychological state, this second state, which explains the passage to the act
Conversely, My Iris and Gerard Christol, in defence, have put forward the mitigation and challenged the premeditation synonymous with assassination. “If we consider that it is altered and it may not have intent, if not his whole head, this is not possible.” For them, “the demon has not taken hold of Charles Pujol ! It is his psychological state, this second state, which explains the passage to the act.”
But the defense didn’t get more. “The death penalty is not appropriate, we must not be content to put up, someone tampered with should not be condemned as someone lucid”, regret-they.
