Jean Alesi soon judged: the former F1 driver admitted a “bad joke” to his brother-in-law

Jean Alesi will have to face justice. The former Formula 1 driver admitted to being at the origin of the damage committed in his brother-in-law’s office and will be tried in January 2023, with his son.

Jean Alesi admitted having made a “bad joke. The former Formula 1 driver will therefore be tried in January 2023 for “damage to the property of others by dangerous means“, said the deputy prosecutor of Nîmes, Antoine Wolff, to The team. He was summoned by the criminal court of Nimes. During his custody, Jean Alesi admitted to having stuck a “big fireworks bought in Italy“in the frame of a window of the architectural firm of his brother-in-law in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon (Gard), Sunday December 19, 2021. The former Formula 1 star will not be the only person judged in this business. Indeed, he was at the scene with his son, Giuliano. The latter will therefore be tried for complicity in this case. Only, the two men still risk a heavy sentence sincethey risk ten years’ imprisonment and a fine of 150,000 euros.

While the brother of Jean Alesi had also been placed in police custody in this case, the one who played thirteen seasons in Formula 1, 201 Grand Prix and 32 podiums, including a victory in Canada in 1995, quickly assured that he had nothing to do with it. According to him, he just wanted to do “a bad joke“to his brother-in-law, in the process of separation with Jean Alesi’s sister,”without imagining causing such damage, said the deputy prosecutor of Nîmes.

Jean Alesi’s brother-in-law filed a complaint for the degradation of his cabinet

If the brother-in-law of Jean Alesi assured to have no problem with him, he still decided to file a complaint for the degradation of his cabinet. Aged 57, the former pilot will therefore have to justify his gesture in court. While the reasons for this act are still unclear, he will have time to prepare his defense.
