A 39-year-old man was sentenced on Friday to eight years in prison by the Assize Court of Hauts-de-Seine.

He was found guilty of two armed robberies out of the 17 for which he was suspected, reports

Le Parisien


All the thefts were committed in supermarkets in Ile-de-France in 2016 and 2017. The two for which the 30-year-old was convicted took place on March 18, 2017 in Kremlin-Bicêtre and Choisy-le-Roi (Val -de-Marne).

Two other defendants were acquitted by the courts, in particular due to the lack of evidence.

No warrant of deposit

For the only condemned, it was the clothes he wore on the day of the events that notably betrayed him.

He wore the same outfit when leaving his home, in Bourg-la-Reine (Hauts-de-Seine) and on the CCTV images of the robbed stores.

Deemed free, the man left free from the Assize Court since no warrant of committal was issued.

The accused has already spent four years behind bars, in pre-trial detention for similar acts.
