French champion jockey Pierre-Charles Boudot was charged Wednesday with the rape of a feminine rider at Cagnes-sur-Mer, prosecutors in Senlis introduced. Boudot, who received the 2019 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, is accused of raping the plaintiff on the night time of February 17 at Cagnes-sur-Mer on France’s Cote d’Azur. “My client, a 25-year-old woman from Chantilly’s racing community, was at a party,” lawyer Justine Devred informed AFP. “It’s highly likely she was made to drink or administered substances to make her incapable of consent.”
“She has flashes, long periods, moments when her body was no longer responding,” Devred added.
A second jockey has been charged with failure to report a criminal offense in reference to the case.
Although the alleged rape occurred on the racing centre of Cagnes-sur-Mer close to Nice the case was moved to Senlis close to France’s flat racing headquarters Chantilly the place Boudot lives.
Under the phrases of his 50,000 euro bail Boudot is banned from getting into Chantilly’s Oise area.
The 28-year-old, French champion in 2015, 2016 and 2020, can also be being investigated for a second cost of rape, which he denies, relationship again to 2015.
In this case he has been named as an assisted-witness, Jean-Baptiste Bladier, the prosecutor at Senlis north of Paris introduced.
As within the February case the plaintiff says she too was drugged earlier than being raped.
