They were the suppliers of the comedian’s drug orgies. Two Pierre Palmade dealers were sentenced, Monday, November 20, by the Melun court (Seine-et-Marne) to sentences of up to one year in prison for drug trafficking.

In a subsidiary procedure to the investigation into the dramatic road accident caused in Seine-et-Marne by Pierre Palmade under the influence of narcotics, three young men were prosecuted for selling and delivering drugs to the artist at the time of collision. One was sentenced to a one-year suspended sentence, another to one year in prison with continued detention. The third defendant was acquitted.

Pierre Palmade indicted

On February 10, on a departmental road in Seine-et-Marne, Pierre Palmade was driving a car which hit a vehicle coming in front. In addition to the actor, the accident left three seriously injured: a 38-year-old man, his 6-year-old son and his 27-year-old sister-in-law, six and a half months pregnant. She lost her child, a female, before an emergency cesarean delivery.

In police custody, Pierre Palmade, who has suffered from drug addiction problems for decades, admitted to having consumed narcotics before getting behind the wheel.

He was indicted for homicide and involuntary injuries by a driver who used narcotics as a repeat offender. The qualifications retained are likely to be modified to “unintentional injuries” by the judge during the investigation after a medical expert report established, in September, the in utero death of the passenger’s child who was in the vehicle hit by that of the comedian.
