Había recurrido la sentencia, así que como no era aún firme, solo se le puede llamar «presunto»:
The weekly journal Valeurs Actuelles has been ordered to pay a heavy fine in damages to Pierre Bodein, the murderer and torturer of three people, including two children, one of whom was little Jeanne-Marie Kegelin. On January 11, 2008, the journal published an article on the «necessary extension of jail sentences, out of a concern for public safety, of the most dangerous criminals». The article mentioned this pathetic individual given a life sentence in 2007 for the three murders, after having been released early from prison. Bodein filed a suit against the journal on grounds that it violated the «presumption of his innocence» since he was appealing the verdict. On October 2, 2008, Pierre Bodein was sentenced by the criminal court of appeals to life. The appeals court of Colmar did not take this verdict into account when it sustained the ruling to make Valeurs Actuelles pay damages to the torturer Pierre Bodein for «moral harm».
Y aun dicen que esto se arregla haciendo cumplir la ley. Sí, claro que sí.
