A mayor who raped a junior staff member in his office continues to run the town from his prison cell

 Opposition leaders and feminist groups in France have protested over a local town mayor convicted of rape who has been allowed to continue running his municipality of 30,000 people from a prison cell.


For more than two months, Georges Tron, who was once a central government minister under Nicolas Sarkozy, has run the town of Draveil, a southern suburb of Paris, from his prison cell after being convicted of the rape and sexual assault of a junior staff member at his town hall office.

The 63-year-old was given a five-year sentence, two years of which were suspended. He has denied the charges and lodged an appeal with the French Supreme Court.
