Mother Held Down 4-Year-Old Son So Jailed Stepfather Could Repeatedly Rape Him

Sabrina Bonner, 25, blindfolded the boy during visits to the Toul detention center during which her partner Lionel Barthelemy, 31, had sex with him. Barthelemy was also sentenced to 20 years.

The Toul detention center in France: Inside, Sabrina Bonner held down her 4-year-old son as the boy’s stepfather raped him over and over in 2009 and 2010.

A French mother who held down her four-year-old son whilst he was raped by his stepfather in a prison visiting room has been handed a maximum 20-year prison sentence.

Her partner was also handed the same sentence by a court in eastern France. He had been incarcerated in 2009 after being convicted of offences relating to domestic violence.

Sabrina Bonner, 25, and Lionel Barthelemy, 31, both admitted multiple counts of rape and sexual assault of the boy.

Bonner handed herself into police in May 2011, shortly before Barthelemy was due for release. She claims she was coerced into carrying out the attacks under threat of violence from Barthelemy.

Prosecutor Giles Delorme described Barthelemy as “a sadist in the purest form”. Of Bonner, he said “the behaviour of Sabrina B. is not even that of an animal towards its child.”

The boy, now eight, was blindfolded by his mother at the detention centre where Barthelemy was being held. A Strasbourg court heard Bonner had held her son’s arms behind his back whilst he was raped in an attack filmed on a mobile phone.

Investigators found that black bin bags were used to cover the glass window in the door of the visiting room.

Psychiatric experts evaluating the couple say they had a sado-masochist relationship, and often took turns acting as “master” and “slave”.

One expert, Jean-Georges Rohmer, said it was difficult to determine “who used the other more” during the brutal attacks.

Bonner admitted to filming attacks between 2009 and 2010 and giving the phone memory card to Barthelemy whilst he was imprisoned.
