Prosecutor demands nine and six-and-a-half years' imprisonment in drug trial

. Senior public prosecutor jakobeit demanded for michael S., accused of trafficking in narcotics in a not insignificant amount, a six and a half year prison sentence. For marcel G., the prosecutor demanded a nine-year prison sentence for the man, who is also accused of armed trafficking in a not insignificant amount of narcotics. He rejected placement in a closed psychiatric facility.

Defenders' incomprehension
The demanded punishments met with incomprehension from the defense team. Attorney olivia viola ulbrich (frankfurt) held a two-year prison sentence for her client michael S. For sufficient. The prosecution was not able to prove the existence of a racketeering conspiracy, and the 28-year-old had otherwise been convicted mere subordinate acts of support provided.
"It is a purely circumstantial trial", my lawyer stefan seidel (niederwerrn), who pleaded for the defense team of marcel G. (22) pleaded. The evidence did not support a gang agreement. "The defense was unanimous", stressed the specialist lawyer for criminal law. In addition, he was of the opinion that the baseball bat found in his client's room could not be attributed to him due to a lack of consciousness of the crime of conspiracy. The court had indicated a similar view in its remarks. Seidel's consequence: he demanded a prison sentence of two and a half years for his client, which the engaged young man should spend in a psychiatric institution.
Prosecutor jakobeit admittedly saw the presence of a gang even if an explicit agreement cannot be proven. One has with other E. One main perpetrator and two other perpetrators, or at least assistants. "I don't believe the story of his alleged blackmail in frankfurt", he referred to the contradictory testimony of the latter. "They wanted to do it again. This is the crux of the matter", the experienced prosecutor was sure.

"Chain of evidence closed"
The chain of evidence is closed. Cannabis with a total amount of 1.7 kilograms of THC was found, the not small amount had been exceeded 239-fold. "And the defendants claim they did not know what was at stake all along. Whoever believes this can no longer be helped", argued the prosecutor.
Regarding marcel G. Reminded that almost 700 grams of hashish and a baseball bat were found on him. This carries the accusation of armed trafficking. In addition, he had on the occasion of the house search ten minutes drugs down the toilet, until the police could arrest him. For his actions he should be given a normal prison sentence, not a psychiatric placement.

Hirschaider personnel carousel causes displeasure

Hirschaider personnel carousel causes displeasure

Once again, the market town council is affected by a change in personnel: daniel seeberger of the CSU faction is leaving at his own request due to professional and private changes. For legal reasons, the market town council could not object to his request for release from honorary office. The first successor on the CSU list was H.-G. Muhlbauer, who, however, renounced his affiliation to the market town council.
The other successor on the list, christian buttel, who has been advising the council in his capacity as local spokesman for friesen, will now take his place. Buttel agreed. Friesen no longer has a separate local spokesman after being sworn in as a market town councilor.
The change was not left uncommented in the meeting this time, after the strikingly frequent changes had already been subjected to critical scrutiny on the local page of the frankischer tag.
This time, kurt barthelmes of the WG regnitzau expressed his regret about the new legal regulation, according to which it is no longer necessary to have a special reason for giving up a seat on a municipal council. In this way, the council chairs could also be raffled off at the same time, the lawyer remarked. A municipal council election therefore no longer has anything to do with democracy. Barthelmes: "an aberration!" And the SPD councillor josef haas was furious because it is accepted that someone has been absent from meetings for a long time without being excused. "That stinks to heaven", haas said.

Error in the building office

The "nahversorgungszentrum II" development plan had almost been approved in sassanfahrt all hurdles of the hearing procedure taken, but now the development plan must be put on public display again. The reason for this is the objection of a berlin lawyer who represents a resident of the development area: during the second public display, the expert alarm study was not visible on the internet during the entire display period. Therefore, the lawyer criticized a "considerable procedural error".
This is now remedied by a new public interpretation, which was decided with two votes against. A bit meekly, mayor klaus homann admitted that the mistake had been made in the construction office of the market township. It remains to be seen whether the delay will have a negative impact and whether the municipality will have to answer for it.

The balance sheet is right again

From one pocket to the other: as an auxiliary company of the administration, the market's building yard provides services for cost-accounting facilities such as water supply and wastewater disposal. So that the balance sheet is correct, the working hours are charged: retroactively for 2017 with 31 euros per hour. This corresponds to average gross personnel costs of 27 euros plus an overhead surcharge of 15 percent. The market town council agreed with this regulation.
Mayor klaus homann put the damage caused by the heavy storm with devastating hailstorms on 11 a.M. At around 50,000 euros. June of this year of the market community at various buildings has arisen. The repair costs at the hirschaider school alone amounted to 25,000 euros. Because most of the buildings in the municipality are only insured against fire, the mayor decided to issue an urgent order, namely to increase the insurance coverage of the frankenlagune, the regnitzarena, the three kindergartens and both schools. Insurance premiums will increase from 31,364 to 87,700 euros, with a 25,000-euro deductible. In view of the storms that have occurred in the meantime, causing considerable damage in neighboring hausen and heroldsbach, the market town council approved the increase in insurance coverage by the mayor without further ado.

Notorious fare dodger “oma gertrud” free again

Notorious fare dodger

The little woman in the pink down jacket laughs mischievously at the cameras as she enters the courtroom: "thank you very much, that's an honor." Her shaggy, feminine hair is unkempt. The 87-year-old comes straight out of custody in a prison in gelsenkirchen, where she had to spend nine days. "Oma gertrud" moves the murmurs, many want to help the old lady with the meager pension.

Five days before christmas eve, the wuppertal district court hears her case. The courtroom is full. The 87-year-old is accused of 22 counts of fare evasion on german railroad trains – what the lawyers call "beforderungserschleichung". This is not the first time she has been in court for this, only in june she was sentenced to 400 euros fine.

As the prosecutor's representative lists the trap, an aerial streetcar whizzes past the window. In some cases, according to the prosecution, it was late at night when she was caught. The old lady is very mobile and obviously homeless by now: "I sleep here, I sleep there", she says. She sleeps in the trains? Why she has no social housing? Such questions will no longer be answered on thursday.

Few more flight cancellations in frankfurt

Few more flight cancellations in frankfurt

Air traffic has largely returned to normal. There is also no threat of new strikes in the next few days, as the air traffic control union (gdf) explained. 3.2 million euros in damages were at issue in court on thursday, which lufthansa, air berlin and ryanair are jointly demanding from the gdf for merely threatening pilot strikes last summer.

The frankfurt labor court had halted the apron strike at germany’s most important air hub on wednesday after almost two weeks because the gdf had violated the peace obligation with two subordinate strike objectives. The strike ended immediately. The 200 or so strikers effectively resumed work with the start of the early shift on thursday. Previously, the same court had already prohibited a support strike by the air traffic controllers of deutsche flugsicherung (DFS), which had probably paralyzed the entire airport.

On thursday, the gdf again called on fraport for new negotiations for all of the approximately 200 employees. "Ultimately, fraport cannot be interested in a new strike," said gdf spokesman matthias maas. The airport operator, on the other hand, does not want to release the aircraft dispatchers – just under half of the strikers – from their collective bargaining agreement. Fraport has only offered the other two occupational groups, apron controllers and traffic planners, an offer above the basic pay scale. This would still include increases of up to 70 percent for the pilots, because they could refer to comparable salaries of their colleagues in munich.
