Without a license and a repeat offender
The mis en cause is arrested and placed in custody. During his hearing, he makes incoherent remarks and the gendarmes realize that the declared identity is that … of the suspect’s brother! The latter does not have the permit and, what is more, is a repeat offender of several road offenses.
Placed in detention, he was tried a few days later, Wednesday 14th March, at the High Court of Amiens in the context of an immediate appearance. He is sentenced to 12 months in prison, including 3 months suspended, 500 euros fine, and leaves directly to the prison.
