I couldn’t see a thread about her yet. I feel as though she needs our positive thoughts and prayers. Poor, poor woman and her daughters.

Yes, it’s basically their equivalent of the Crown stipulating that limitation on the sentence. It was obviously a huge relief to Valerie.

Poor woman not only has she been through so much but also the press intrusion on her life right now must be horrendous. Just looking at all the cameras in her face and thinking she deserves some peace.

This is brilliant. The prosecutor is basically calling for her to be released (given a one-year jail term with an added four years suspended, which meant releasing her because of time served).

Wonderful news!

Guardian article on the case

Bacot’s story is one of more than two decades of almost continuous abuse to which first her own mother, then other family members, and finally the police turned a blind eye. When her children tried to report their father to the gendarmerie, they were told to go away.

Thank god she has been released. I hope she gets plenty of support to help rebuild her life, and that of her children.

Excellent news!

No idea how she can rebuild her life after a lifetime of abuse by that piece of shit, but I so hope she can. And that her children get over all their trauma too.

Nathalie Tomasini, one of two lawyers representing Bacot, said: “A summons for liability for gross negligence has been filed with the Paris court in view of the many failures [of the state].”

Well absolutely. So pleased this is happening. This monster was given a free pass by the authorities and no one would know about it to this day if she has not picked up his gun.

It's outrageous that she has spent a year on remand.
