the horrible stories of his ex -girlfriends

The trial of Jean-Marc Reiser, alleged killer of Sophie Le Tan, opened Monday afternoon before the Assizes in Bas-Rhin. A man was already convicted of rape in 2003 and then acquitted for lack of evidence in another disappearance case in 2001.

To varying degrees, they all suffer from addiction and admit it. They are manipulated and felt like “victims”, “trophies”. Sometimes they too and most of all are afraid of him, even “afraid of death”. Five of Jean-Marc Reiser’s former partners, met since her youth and who came to testify on Tuesday June 28, have more or less recovered from this relationship. They don’t know each other and tell more or less the same story: a normal relationship “easily damaged”, falling into insults, then violence. “He’s going to take a spin for left”. They were all trying to forget this “completely unpredictable” attitude, with “angry feelings” and who “felt very small, a dwarf playing giants but not loving himself”. Someone tore up part of the photos in the album where they could be seen. One, on the other hand, had to take photos of his union out of a drawer to recall “sad memories” before showing up at the bar. The third “scared of the road” in ten years after the separation… “I feel it behind me”. On the other hand, his imaginary and frightening shadow haunted him for a year. Solid, head to shoulders, unshakable: difficult for Reiser’s three lawyers, Mrs. Francis Metzger, Pierre Giuriato and Xavier Metzger, to destabilize them or to doubt the essence of their stories, if not for their confirmation that they are real. never sexually abused by the accused, no doubt in preparing the Court for the idea that Sophie Le Tan was not sexually assaulted. Let’s get rid of some of JM Reiser’s sexuality, here “not a thunder of war” there, “less imaginative” and finally “enthusiastic at first then quick to plan”. Reiser, who was asked by President Antoine Giesssenhoffer to end this women’s parade that lasted five hours, agrees to “focus less on the matter”.

Later, on vacation in Landes, Marion crepes her bun with Reiser’s brother because she gives sweets to the kids – including her daughter – when we sit down to eat. “After the meal, he locked me in the room and then beat me outside the bungalow”. Neighbors ran, he was seen carrying a knife. “Jean-Marc fled when the gendarmes arrived, was called by the neighbors, then he came back as if nothing had happened”. Sylvie*, after a good start, shouted at the first dinner she organized at home, “frozen steaks and potatoes, but which I had improved”. Reiser softly asked “Mashed fish, for the next meal.” That is, served at 7.45am instead of the exact 7.30am, he will receive “very precise slaps, with the edge of the hand”. Same price as the shower flower instead of the washcloth she cried in the bathroom. And when on several occasions Sylvie refuses a sexual relationship, “I’m at war”, she summarizes. “Once, in addition, he robbed the sofa bed for 2000 €.

With the exception of Marie-Laure, with whom the relationship lasted only three months, others remained four, five, ten years with her. Isabelle* refers to her “own weakness as a driving force in the relationship”. Marion: “If you have this pattern, you feel guilty, that you are not right. So we locked in there. He said to me: “You make me crazy”. Sylvie: “She was very intelligent and very agile. He blamed me. His argument: “After all I have done for you, how can you …” Then, after insults or blows, he apologizes. A good classic! “”. Anne*: “We told ourselves it was better to stay low profile”. But their most shocking memories are concerned with the stages of breakup, when they finally decide to leave. You could say run away. Isabelle: “We will not leave Jean-Marc Reiser, he will leave you”. Marion felt it was “hard to get out of it”. He left her “in secret”, without warning. He would harass her at work, then “look for me anywhere like a fool”, even in this dorm he kept, where he was phoning day and night, waiting for her to come out. One night, unable to bear it any longer, he went downstairs. Reiser convinced him to drive to talk. “He was driving so fast in a forest, threw me on the ground, kicked me in the stomach. There was a ditch not far away. I saw myself dead there. Then he suddenly calmed down. The night had fallen.” Nothing you’re even crying, “he told me. I was just scared.” He found Isabelle tracking down in Brest, where he would go back and forth to try to get her back. “Before, for a year, I received about flowers, parcels, burning letters “. Reiser said he went to war to forget her”. Marie-Laure, she followed him everywhere, H24, trying to break down the door of her studio, on the ground floor of a street in Bastia, where Reiser, like her, was studying at the Regional Institute of Administration (IRA) in 1988 “ He taped insulting words on my door, or even love letters. Along the way, he insulted me ”. Non-stop phone calls, again. Marie-Laure left a handrail at the police station. The carousel continues. Then he called his family: uncle, aunt, cousin. “They took turns escorting me to class like a child! “It’s not enough. Marie-Laure calls a Corsican friend, a gym teacher, who threatens Reiser.” She’s finally gone. “

Asked at 7 p.m. about these testimonies by the President, Jean-Marc Reiser will admit that “all violence, it’s real”, but he doesn’t have this “negative image” of women spoken to in the press. During the conflicting separation, she had “inappropriate behaviors”. He would then point out the “inaccuracies, version changes” he noticed in this file that he knew in his heart, which he dedicated to “anger or revenge”. But when Me Gérard Welzer, lawyer at the Épinal bar and adviser for the Le Tan family with Me Rémi Stephan, forcefully asked him to name the facts he rejected, he instead discussed the details to finally be released. : “Together, it fits.” His lawyer Metzger ended the day by asking him if he linked his “excesses” to his “younger years.” Allusion to his father, quartermaster of navy then forest ranger, who drowned in alcoholism.He beat his wife and young Jean-Marc intervened to protect his mother.But in retaliation he received beatings, so at the age of fourteen he threatened his father and beat him.After staying in psychiatry – “You didn’t beat your father”, his mother said during the investigation – Jean -Marc was placed in an educational establishment, the Château d’Angleterre, in Bischeim.
