Some have been injured, raped. Others have stolen, killed, sequestered. Victims, or alleged culprits, here they are in court. For the weakest as well as for the toughest, this is one of the only places where they may be given a chance to speak. In his chronicles inspired by true stories, Maître Mô, lawyer at the Bar of Lille, puts men, women and children facing the law in the spotlight. He describes a man accused of murdering his wife with the help of his best friend; the tortures a couple subjected to a homeless man; a teacher accused of molesting a pupil; a young girl abused by her mother’s companion… Au guet-apens recounts the long journey of those the lawyer has defended, up to the point of judgement and verdict. From the comical story of his first plea to the harrowing tale of a fatal accident, which forced the author through hell before he could reach redemption, Maître Mô gives us an insight into and a better understanding of daily criminal justice. With tact and compassion, he takes the place of those he represents, going so far as to slip into their shoes so that he can better understand the hardships they have lived through. And just as he shares the ordeals of the victims, he also follows the experiences of those who are accused of monstrous crimes. The main thing Maître Mô offers to all these "God’s outcasts" is the part of humanity, as tiny as it may be, which society tries to remove from them.
Born in Lille in 1967, this lawyer who has chosen the pseudonym of Maître Mô finished his studies and schooling there, before "swearing in" in 1992. He has worked mainly in criminal law since the beginning of his career.
