I'm a British guy currently in a French prison. AMA!
I'm a British guy currently being held on remand in a French prison. I've been here around 8 months so far. I'm on remand while French authorities conduct their investigation so as yet have no firm date for freedom but my lawyer feels it's unlikely to be beyond 18-24 months in total.
I can't go into further specifics regarding my case as that may compromise my anonymity.

I will try to hang around and answer questions until about 2am CET (UTC+1)...
*Edit: well past 2am here now so I gotta get to bed, I may try to check this account again tomorrow and answer any outstanding interesting questions. Thanks for the company, the evening has flown past :)
