Alain Schmitt Tried Margaux Pinot Again: Exes Reunion…New Disturbing Elements Revealed

Alain Schmitt and Margaux Pinot met in court on Friday, April 8, 2022 at the Paris Court of Appeal. The 38-year-old judo coach was on trial for domestic violence, accused by Olympic champion Margaux Pinot, also his ex-girlfriend.

On the night of November 28, 2021, the two athletes had a violent altercation in an apartment belonging to Blanc-Mesnil (Seine-Saint-Denis). Alain Schmitt was preparing to leave for Israel to train the women’s team and leave Margaux Pinot, with whom he has been living a complicated story for four years. After the trainer’s arrest and his placement in police custody, the case was quickly adjudicated late at night in an immediate appearance in Bobigny court. Alain Schmitt had then benefited from a release and Margaux Pinot had publicized the extent of his injuries on social networks in protest.

As sensitive as the subject of domestic violence is, it cannot lead to a presumption of guilt that is not provided for in the law.“, the court of Bobigny ruled in its verdict of November 30, consulted by AFP, given the evidence insufficient to convict Alain Schmitt. Because, according to the judges of first instance, “the objective elements, as well as the lesions observed on one and the other, the traces of struggle noted in the apartmentindeed accredit both the story of Margaux Pinot and that of the defendant. The prosecution, which had asked for a conviction, appealed.

For days, the ex-lovers had repeated the process several times through press conferences and the intervention of TV sets. Sports and political personalities, such as Teddy Riner or Roxana Maracineanu, had publicly supported the 27-year-old young woman, gold medalist at the last Olympics with the mixed French team, and suddenly became an emblematic victim of unpunished domestic violence.

In this case, however, the two protagonists, who each had multiple bruises, offer completely contradictory versions of the events of the night of November 28, 2021 with the same confidence.
