This October 27, C8 will offer an unpublished documentary devoted to Chrisitian Quesada, the champion of the “12 Coups de midi”, who was indicted in March 2019 for corruption of minors and possession and dissemination of child pornography images. The man who had been sentenced to three years in prison, but who was released on certain conditions, returned to prison for a month last September for not having respected his obligations related to his parole.
Guillaume Genton, columnist for “Touche pas à mon poste”, to whom we owe this documentary, obtained the testimony of Christian Quesada. A fairly long phone call, as he explained to Ciné-Télé-Revue: “We found him rather fit, playful. Which surprised us anyway, because it’s a sordid affair and it doesn’t feel like he took the measure of the gravity of what he did. He rather tends to minimize the facts, he insists that he is a delinquent, not a criminal. But given what we are going to show in the documentary, he may be legally a delinquent, but he is above all a pedophile and what he has done is extremely serious. He had more than 30,000 child pornography images on his computer, including some of the rapes of children under 10 years old. He also has an oversized ego, like many criminals, who prefer to be talked about, even if it means saying horrible things, than being forgotten. He follows everything that is said about him in the press, on TV. And at no time did he have a word for the victims. What interests him is more him than the seriousness of his actions. It’s disturbing to know that someone who did all this received such a light sentence. It’s hard to imagine that a man with his personality disorder can be cured in two years. »
In an interview with Puremédias, Guillaume Genton returned to the day his phone rang, and it was Christian Quesada: “We hallucinated! We were in the middle of filming. We were shooting a show on pounds for RMC Story. The phone rang. We already had his number. We saw ‘Christian Quesada’. I said, ‘Guys, let’s stop everything!’. “An obviously surprising call, but which will undoubtedly make it possible to offer a complete documentary…
