Placed in detention for over a year, Christian Quesada was sentenced to 3 years in prison for “corruption of minors” and “possession of child pornography”. More than a year after the start of the affair, the former TV candidate comes out of his silence.

This Wednesday, September 16, 2020, Guillaume Genton was present on the Touche plateau not at my post where he read the letter that Christian Quesada addressed to him.

The former TV candidate wrote:

Do you really think that I am going to give time to someone working for a chain where for 15 months you have never ceased to handle media lynching, insults, outright defamation and worse, slander, in defiance of the most elementary presumption of innocence.

And add:

I remind you that the facts for which I was arrested are certainly serious and condemnable, but they remain offenses, punishable by correctional, which, through hateful blindness (motivated by a rush to buzz), have turned into a cathodic process more virulent than for Fourniret, Lelandais or Abdeslam.

Words that shocked the chroniclers of the show. Christian Quesada also held to send a message in particular to Cyril Hanouna:

You will thank your boss (Cyril H) for this collector’s sentence about Michel Cymes: ‘I am against media harassment’, No, but LOL what.

Christian Quesada speaks for the first time

Sentenced to 3 years in prison for “corruption of minors” and “possession of child pornography”, Christian Quesada speaks for the first time. Indeed, as revealed to Touche pas at my post on his Twitter account, the former candidate of the 12 strokes of noon came out of his silence. It was via a letter addressed to producer Guillaume Genton that he spoke.

Guest on the set of the famous show presented by Cyril Hanouna this Wednesday, September 16, 2020, Guillaume Genton will unveil the content of this letter.

Angry viewers

But it is clear that the news is already spilling a lot of ink on thesocial networks. Many are frustrated to see the Christian Quesada affair still being reported on television. A media exposure which is not unanimous.

Back to the case

Christian Quesada was arrested and detained in March 2019. The former master of noon had then admitted the facts with which he was accused during his police custody. He had however specified “never to have taken action and never to have committed aggression”.

Since then, he is still behind bars. It must be said that the revelations and the overwhelming testimonies have followed one another in recent months. Until now, Christian Quesada had never spoken, leaving only his lawyer to do so. But last April, a twist: a few hours before the opening of the trial of the former TV candidate, his lawyer, Me Camacho, revealed that he was no longer ensuring his defense.

Christian Quesada sentenced to three years in prison

It was therefore alone, via videoconference, that Christian Quesada answered the judge’s questions. The former TF1 champion was sentenced to three years in prison and five years of socio-judicial monitoring. Our colleagues from Progress specified at the time that “in the event of non-compliance with the follow-up, he will have to serve three additional years in prison”.
