Saxony-Anhalt: After child abuse verdict: defense goes into revision

Dessau-Roßlau (dpa/sa) - After the regional court in Dessau-Roßlau convicted a 45-year-old of serious sexual abuse of children, the defense is now appealing. The regional court announced this on Friday. Should the revision be granted, the case would end up at the Federal Court of Justice (BGH). The competent Senate at the BGH makes the decision on the appeal.

The regional court saw it as proven that the 45-year-old had sexually abused children for two decades - and sentenced him to nine years in prison. In addition, the judges ordered subsequent preventive detention on Thursday.

In doing so, the chamber largely followed the motions of the public prosecutor and the private prosecutor, who had called for ten years in prison and preventive detention. The defense had considered six years' imprisonment appropriate and advocated a later decision on preventive detention.

According to the conviction of the court, the Dessau man repeatedly abused four boys between 2000 and 2020. The man had always built up a relationship of trust with children from difficult family backgrounds and later exploited it. The Dessau filmed the abuse, put the videos on the Internet and offered them for exchange on relevant platforms. Investigators in Australia and Great Britain had tracked down the perpetrator.
