Lanvaudan clandestine butcher: closed prison in the sixties – Brittany


18 months in prison, including six months with a two-year probationary suspension to allow him to regularize the € 24,000 in arrears at Urssaf in addition to his tax debts; a definitive ban on managing and exercising the activity of butcher-caterer-pork butcher; the confiscation of the € 91,000 woolen stocking that he had collected and seized during the investigation. Such had been the requisitions of Yann Richard, vice-prosecutor of Lorient, when the case was examined on September 29.

Requisitions which had somewhat “sounded” the Lanvaudannais who aspired only to one thing: to spend a retreat under the Senegalese sun.

Twenty-seven offenses and contraventions ranging from the non-declaration of his butcher’s shop to the prefecture as well as his income at the Urssaf and the tax authorities, to breaches of hygiene rules… he was accused of.

Since 2016, the sixty-year-old had developed a small business, selling andouilles, roasts, merguez, sausages, pâtés … In the space of four years, it had generated a turnover estimated at € 267,000.

€ 40,500 confiscated

At the hearing, the Lanvaudannais had admitted to generate 1,000 to 2,000 € of income per month, he who, moreover, lived only on a small disability pension. To justify the savings he had garnered, he explained that he was content with “200 to 300 € to live”.

When the gendarmes had damaged his “small business”, falling “neither more nor less than the D system”, for Gilles Régnier, his lawyer, € 91,000 had been seized from his accounts and in cash. Assets for which the lawyer claimed the restitution, after deduction, of social and tax debts, insofar as on the account, there were 15,000 € linked to the inheritance of his mother and 15,000 others, linked to an accident work.

He was partially successful since in his judgment, this Monday, October 18, the Lorient court ordered the return of the assets seized from his various bank accounts € 48,300. On the other hand, the court ordered the confiscation of the 40,500 € of cash seized within the framework of the investigation.

Definitive bans

In addition, the sixty-year-old was sentenced to 18 months in prison, nine of which were accompanied by a two-year probationary period with the obligation to settle his debts to the public treasury and tax authorities. In addition, there are eight fines of € 500. He must, moreover, request the authorization of the judge for any trip abroad. Definitive bans on managing and exercising the activity of butcher-delicatessen-caterer have been pronounced.
