Will Raphael Maillant be the twelfth man convicted of a crime since 1945 to be granted a retrial? On Thursday, September 24, 2015, the review court ruled on an exceptional case, dating back more than a quarter of a century.
In 1991, Valérie Bechtel, a young woman of 20 was found dead, naked, in a forest in Thaon-les-Vosges. Six years later, Raphaël Maillant was sentenced to 17 years in prison for her murder on the strength of the accusations of his best friend at the time, Yann Bello. But was Bello telling the truth?
