Munich’s former conservatory chief Siegfried Mauser has lost his appeal against a jail sentence of two years and nine months for sexually molesting women.
Mauser had claimed procedural irregularities in his trial. The Oberlandesgericht threw this out and, significantly, allowed the state prosecutor to submit an appeal, arguing that the sentence was too short.
Mauser, 63, still enjoys extensive support in the music-educational establishment.
UPDATE: The SZ has printed a small correction:
Note: In an earlier version the now rejected revision request by Mauser by by the Higher Regional Court (OLG ) was mistakenly related to the verdict in the second trial of Siegfried Mauser (May 2018, two years and nine months in prison) for sexual coercion. However, the Higher Regional Court rejected the appeal request which referred to the appeal judgment in the first trial against Mauser (April 2017, nine months imprisonment on probation).
