The investigation into the rape charges against Richard Berry and his ex-girlfriend, Jeane Manson, was dismissed for prescription on Wednesday August 31, the Paris prosecutor’s office told franceinfo. It had been initiated on January 25, 2021 after a complaint filed by the actor’s daughter Coline Berry.

“For us, it’s a huge relief”, assures on franceinfo the lawyer of Coline Berry, Maître Patrick Klugman. According to him, the classification without continuation for reason of prescription is given when “the facts are sufficiently characterized”. “That’s what happenedhe believes. When justice conducts an investigation and the facts do not appear to be characterized, it is for this reason that it closes the investigation, not for prescription.

“From now on, no one will ever again be able to say that Coline Berry, a victim of incest, is a liar.”

In an article in the newspaper Le Monde, published on February 3, 2021, Coline Berry claimed to have suffered sexual violence when she was a minor, between 1984 and 1985, accusing her father and the ex-wife of comedian Jeane Manson. Richard Berry and his ex-girlfriend denied the facts. Jeane Mansion had even filed a complaint for defamation, for which Coline Berry was sentenced at first instance by the Aurillac court on April 14 to a fine of 2,000 euros and 20,000 euros in damages to be paid to her ex. -stepmother.

Coline Berry appealed against this conviction. “We are now impatiently and serenely awaiting this ordeal to restore the honor and dignity of Coline Berry who, alone and against a powerful system, denounced the harshest facts that can be denounced”declares his lawyer on franceinfo.
