Woman killed stepdad who first raped her when she was 12 after years of abuse

Woman killed stepdad who first raped her when she was 12 after years of abuse


A mum shot dead her abusive stepfather turned husband who raped and prostituted her, she will tell a court.

Valérie Bacot faces murder charges in France following the death of convicted incest monster Daniel “Dany” Polette on March 13.

Much of the harrowing published book, Bacot’s story: Tout le Monde Savait (Everyone Knew) is expected to be heard at a court in Chalon-sur-Saône, Burgundy to add context to the defendant’s actions.

Bacot claims Polette made her life hell for as long as 24 years since he first raped her when she was just 12 and fathered her four children who she feared he would kill.

The terrified mum who alleges her entire life was controlled by Polette, has admitted to using the gun he hid between car seats, to free herself from daily beatings and prostitution, The Guardian reports.

Bacot’s lawyers, Janine Bonaggiunta and Nathalie Tomasini said in the preface to her story: “This is a woman who has been destroyed and devastated, not just by the lack of maternal love, the rapes, the blows, the denigration, the prostitution but also and above all by the indifference and the omerta of society.

“From her earliest age, she was put through terrible things without anyone, not even those close to her, blinking an eye. They ignored her distress and her ordeal, which could be read on her face. The story of her life is deeply distressing.”

The court will hear how Bacot’s children were ordered by the gendarmes to go away when they tried reporting their mother’s torment at the hands of Polette.

She will say she had nowhere to go, nobody to turn to, no money, and was so under Polette’s control she had no idea how to escape her daily terror of threats and violence.

In May, Fayard, one of France’s best-known publishing houses, published 198 words of Bacot’s story: Tout le Monde Savait (Everyone Knew), according to The Guardian.

Polette’s campaign of abuse began when Bacot’s alcoholic mother entered a relationship with him and only when the topic of sex was studied in biology did the then-12-year-old realise she was being raped by her stepfather.

The stepfather was jailed for incest in 1995 but was allowed to return to the family home after three years and continued to rape Bacot.

She writes in her book: “Nobody seemed to find it bizarre that Daniel came back to live with us as if nothing had happened.

“Everyone knew but nobody said anything.”

On his return, Bacot once heard her mother discuss her constant abuse, allegedly saying: “I don’t give a damn as long as she doesn’t become pregnant.”

She eventually became pregnant aged 17, with her first of four children.

Living as a prisoner, Bacot says Polette had friends and relatives spy on her whenever she left the house to make sure she did not speak to anyone.
