The Dachau district court sentenced the 26-year-old mother to a suspended sentence.
During a daring escape from a police checkpoint, a 26-year-old mother nearly ran over a police officer and injured another.
– What on earth makes a 1.60 meter small, 45 kilogram mother of a ten-year-old daughter almost run over a policewoman on an ordinary Friday evening, at full throttle in front of several patrols from the Central Emergency Services (ZED) Fürstenfeldbruck and a car to flee from the police in Dachau, to rush through several red lights and a traffic island, to dash down footpaths, to crash into a site fence and – when she had already been fixed by three police officers – to bite a female officer hard in the thigh?
During the check in Karlsfeld, the young woman lost her nerve
There's a simple answer: She lost her nerve after being pumped full of drugs and cannabis at the wheel.
But there is also a more complicated answer.
"I thought if they caught me, they would take my daughter away from me," said the 26-year-old, who clearly stated in the main hearing before the Dachau district court that she had mental problems.
The woman from Karlsfeld sat there because she had violated five offenses from the Criminal Code during her crazy escape at the end of October 2021: negligent endangerment of road traffic, prohibited motor vehicle racing, resistance to and physical attack on law enforcement officers and bodily harm.
The defendant said she just wanted to get money from the bank.
That's why she got into her seat.
In the Münchner Strasse in Karlsfeld she got into a control point of the ZED Fürstenfeldbruck.
"She first stopped, then drove forward a few meters, accelerated with squealing tires and drove towards me," said a ZED police officer at the hearing.
The 25-year-old jumped to the side and was unharmed.
Meanwhile, the defendant sped away through the night in the direction of Dachau, admitting that she "got everything out of her car".
Refugees could only be caught in Dachau-Ost
Of course, the ZED people gave chase.
And soon a patrol from the PI Dachau was there to confront the fugitive.
That was only possible in Dachau-Ost.
The 26-year-old crashed into a site fence near the AEZ, and the seat got caught on steel beams.
"She was screaming hysterically.
She was beyond good and evil, ”said the policewoman (30) who was bitten and suffered a bad bruise as a result.
Finally, the law enforcement officers joined forces to get the recalcitrant under control and took them to the Dachau hospital for examination.
During the trial, the accused repeatedly burst into tears.
The session even had to be adjourned once.
She formally apologized to the two police officers and reported on her life.
She suffers from depression and a borderline disorder.
After breaking off her hairdressing training, she lives on 450-euro jobs.
Full-time employment is not possible because, as a single parent, she has to take care of her daughter.
She struggles through life, "but it's very, very difficult," said the 26-year-old, who is now under legal supervision.
During the escape, she said, “I didn't feel well mentally.
I couldn't control myself anymore".
District judge stays just below the request of the prosecutor
Despite all understanding for the situation of the accused, the prosecutor applied for a suspended prison sentence of one year and three months and an 18-month driver's license suspension.
The defender of the young mother, lawyer Joachim Schwarzenau, at least tried to get the illegal car race off the table.
His client's driving away was not the "classic case of a car race," he argued, but her mental state had to be taken into account.

Judge Christian Calame saw things differently.
He sentenced the 26-year-old to one year and two months probation for all alleged offenses and ordered her driver's license revoked for 16 months.
There is the act of running alone when you drive away and try to reach maximum speed.
This applies in particular to police escapes.
And he said to the convict: "What you did was more than a fire hazard!" For the police officers and other road users.
