^^^^That is from the standard Predator's Playbook. Predators always say the relationship was consensual. Look at the trial of Harvey Weinstein in progress today for a similar defense.
I used Google translate to read the article, and that's not foolproof.
But my math, based on what I think it's saying, is that he was mid-30's and she was 15 at the time. I do not know what the age of consent is in France, so I do not know if he has a legal leg to stand on in thinking he can call it consensual... but it is morally appalling.
And, of course, the age of consent has NOTHING to do with forceable rape, which is what she claims.
