Already under investigation for rape and sexual assault on a 15-year-old minor, Yannick Agnel is suspected of sexually assaulting another minor in his entourage.
A new case for the Nîmes swimmer. Already charged with rape and sexual assault on a 15-year-old minor, Yannick Agnel is now suspected of sexually assaulting another minor, according to a Parisian revealed this Friday, June 3rd.
A minor from her entourage
According to the newspaper, which cites “concordant sources” surrounding the investigation, the man is suspected of having had “sexual acts” on the second alleged victim, a minor from his entourage. The events allegedly took place during a watered-down party. The judicial police in charge of the first case allegedly heard the accusations, during a wiretapping between members of his family. The age of the victim was not specified.
Asked about the main case of rape and sexual assault on a minor, Yannick Agnel allegedly confessed to the alleged minor with the second minor. For now, the Olympic champion is not under review and has not yet been heard on this new case. The swimmer from Nîmes did not want to comment on the file this Friday.
A first case
As a reminder, in the first case, Yannick Agnel is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl when he was 24 years old. When examined, he had admitted the facts to the judges. The victim was none other than the daughter of his former coach, Lionel Hortner. For his defense, the swimmer said at the time that he did not have the “feeling that there was a constraint.”
At the time, the prosecutor of the Republic of Mulhouse had explained that “if the facts constitute rape or sexual assault, it is because there is a significant age difference.”
