The start of the school year will not only be television, but also legal for Jean-Marc Morandini. According to our colleagues from BFMTV, who rely on a source familiar with the matter, Jean-Marc Morandini will appear before the 15th chamber of the Paris court on October 24 for “corruption of minors”. The host-producer was indicted in this case for having made sexual proposals to two minors aged 15 and 16 at the time of the events. On social networks in March 2013 for one and as part of a casting organized in 2009 for the other. The host then said he did not know the age of the two complainants.

“Nudity is not a taboo”
“He wanted me to masturbate in front of him. (…) He looked at me like I was candy“, testified the 16-year-old teenager, who claims to have been forced to get naked in front of the host, under the pretext of going to a casting. The fifty-year-old had estimated before the police that the description of the situation by the young man was “surrealist“.”Nudity is not a taboo“, he also said.
In 2020, Jean-Marc Morandini had appealed the order for referral to the court issued by an investigating judge, but this request had officially been rejected by the investigating chamber of the Paris Court of Appeal. Through the voice of his lawyer, Corinne Dreyfus-Schmidt, the defendant had considered appealing to the Court of Cassation to challenge this decision.
In the coming months, the one who left NRJ 12 at the end of the season to join C8 and continue his daily program on CNews, will be expected for another trial for “sexual harassment” and “hidden work” in the context of the case of 2016 known as the web-series “Les Faucons”.
For the time being, Jean-Marc Morandini can count on the unfailing support of the management of CNews who, through the voice of his boss Serge Nedjar, assured that the forthcoming appearance before the court of his star host will not prevent him from continue to be on the air. “Until people are found guilty, they are considered innocent. It’s called the presumption of innocence. Jean-Marc has our full confidence“, recently declared the manager in “Le Parisien”.
