The 69-year-old singer, indicted since November 17 for “rape of minors”, “corruption of minors” and “abuse of weakness”, is suspected of having sexually assaulted two teenage girls when they were aged 15 to 17. as of 2013, which he disputes.

They had previously filed a complaint against the singer, but then retracted.
In custody then released
Arrested in early November, the same day that her father, Margaux, one of Jean-Luc Lahaye’s daughters, had seen her police custody for “bribing witnesses and complicity in the rape of a minor over 15 years old” be lifted on the same day due to his state of health. She is suspected of having pressured one of the two complainants to exonerate her father during the previous judicial investigation, specifies The Parisian.
Two women, the mothers of the two victims, were also heard in early November for “non-denunciation of a crime and complicity in the rape of a minor over 15 years old”. They had also been released, without prosecution.
As indicated The Parisian Sunday, Margaux Lahaye and the mothers of the complainants were summoned this week by the investigating judge in charge of the case.
Jean-Luc Lahaye, for his part, has been imprisoned for almost three months in the prison of La Santé (Paris). His request for release had been rejected at the end of last November.
