An Erdinger woman wanted to supplement her meager income, which currently consists only of Hartz IV, by selling a stolen bike on the Internet platform Ebay.
That caught my eye.
Erding - your bad luck: The owner also rummaged in this digital marketplace.
The woman received a criminal complaint for receiving stolen goods and subsequently a penalty order for 525 euros.
She filed an objection against him - of course only because of a misunderstanding.
Public prosecutor Lisa Bieber accused the 58-year-old at the time of the crime of having resold a bicycle that was stolen on July 10 at around 6.30 p.m. in Altenerding.
The woman frankly admitted this.
However, she assured her that she was unaware of her illegal actions.
Because she got the bike from a "casual acquaintance" in order to sell it.
“I had no idea that it was stolen, otherwise I would not have done it,” she protested.
Judge Björn Schindler asked about said acquaintance - in order to get hold of the thief.
But the 58-year-old didn't want to divulge his name.
"Then what is the objection?" Asked the judge.
This is how the misunderstanding arose: the woman only wanted to agree on payment in installments.
All that would have been required was a letter to the public prosecutor's office.
Knowing this, the woman withdrew her objection.
