Volkmarsen: Court sentenced 31-year-olds to life imprisonment

In the trial of the car attack on the Carnival Monday procession in Volkmarsen, northern Hesse, the defendant was sentenced to life imprisonment for 89 murder attempts, among other things. The Kassel district court found the now 31-year-old guilty on Thursday of 88 times attempted murder in unity with dangerous bodily harm and, in one case, of attempted murder and dangerous interference in road traffic.

The court also determined the particular gravity of the guilt. At the end of the detention period, the danger posed by the perpetrator is examined in a further main hearing. The behavior in detention is also taken into account and a psychological report is commissioned. The man’s driver’s license and vehicle are confiscated.

Resolution: Man drove to the carnival parade – he injured 26 children, some seriously, among others

The court is convinced that the man, a German, deliberately drove a car into the carnival parade on February 24, 2020 and injured at least 88 people, including 26 children, in some cases seriously. The accused had remained silent in the proceedings before the regional court. Until recently, it remained unclear why he committed the crime.

The public prosecutor’s office and representatives of the joint plaintiffs had demanded a life sentence with the reservation of subsequent preventive detention and the determination of the particular gravity of the guilt. The defense had pleaded for a lighter sentence than the maximum penalty required, since it was attempted and incomplete murder. (dpa)
