Suspected of rape and sexual assault on minors, Jean-Luc Lahaye remains in prison

The 80s star, 68, is suspected of sexually assaulting two teenage girls, then aged 15 to 17, from 2013.

He was indicted on November 5 in Paris for “rape, rape and sexual assault of minors over 15, corruption of minors” and abuse of weakness. He has since been remanded in custody.

On November 18, the investigative chamber of the Paris Court of Appeal rejected his request for release, according to the judicial source.

The young girls, born in 1998 and 2000, had lodged a complaint against the interpreter of “Papa chanteur”, then retracted before filing a new complaint at the beginning of the year, leading to the opening of an investigation by the parquet.

“I regret this decision, which is however not surprising insofar as it is based on a file in which all the investigations have been carried out”, indicated Me David Apelbaum, who defends the singer with Me Camilla Quendolo, the day after the indictment and imprisonment of his client.

“Judicial information will help restore the truth,” he added.
