Putzbrunn / Sauerlach
- The District Court of Munich I saved a 53-year-old, who in September 2017 aimed a decorative weapon at the Bundestag member Florian Hahn (CSU) from Putzbrunn, from being placed in a psychiatric ward.
Against the prosecution's request, the presiding judge Gilbert Wolf thwarted the request to remain in psychiatry, justifying his decision with insufficient evidence of an increasing risk posed by the woman.
In psychiatry for a year
The Sauerlacherin has been in the psychiatric hospital for a year.
Because she keeps attacking other people because of a schizoaffective disorder, she has already stood on trial 28 times.
But the proceedings were always dropped because of incapacity.
Police officers and orderlies were beaten and bitten
"I don't harm a fly," she said yesterday on the sidelines of the process.
In fact, however, she had been noticed in the past by being beaten and bitten by police officers and orderlies.
Yet there had been no increase in their actions.
But the legislature has required this for accommodation.
The same should actually only be used in very massive cases.
Despite the house ban for discussion
The woman took part as a spectator in a panel discussion in Taufkirchen on September 13, 2017, although she should not have been at the venue due to a house ban.
She spoke up several times, but was not taken.
Then she pointed a decorative weapon at the politician around 9.45 p.m., but soon put it back on the table.
Did Florian Hahn realize that it was a decoration weapon?
Florian Hahn, the public prosecutor reported in her plea yesterday, was afraid.
The defense attorney wasn't so sure.
Hahn is a gun expert and a member of a rifle club.
"He could see the gun as fake," explained the lawyer.
That is why he only moved his chair back briefly, but did not get up, the lawyer explained.
He feared that his client would react in a similar way over and over again.
However, he did not consider accommodation to be appropriate.
Expert for further placement in psychiatry
A psychiatric expert had previously spoken out in favor of placement.
However, she drew her conclusions from the files and from the woman's appearance in court.
The 53-year-old had not been examined.
The accused shows no insight into the disease to this day.
She describes herself as a sensitive person who does not need psychiatric treatment, said the expert.
She thought personal injury could not be ruled out.
There are risk factors for violent behavior with varying degrees of severity, she said.
Is the public prosecutor's office going on appeal?
However, the expert owed the court no indications of an increase in the assumed acts of violence.
It can be assumed that the public prosecutor's office will appeal the judgment.
