From ORF Salzburg:

The start of the imprisonment of former Mozarteum Rector Siegfried Mauser has been delayed. The 65-year-old’s lawyer has asked for a stay of sentence, arguing that his client is for health reasons not fit to undergo detention. Mauser, who had been sentenced to two years and nine months in prison in Munich for sexual assault in three cases, was due to begin his sentence in a prison near Salzburg at the end of July, but according to court spokesman Peter Egger, an expert has now been commissioned to examine Mauser’s alleged incapacity.

    Mafia dons used to pull that one. This cove should pull the other one.

    Thank you for filling us in on the saga of the Munich Molester. Are prisoners in Salzburg allowed furloughs to the Salzburg Festival?

  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    Where is the surprise here? Seriously. The western world judicial system has been over-run by social justice warriors and people express surprise when stuff like this happens.

    It’s not in any way surprising to those hard-headed conservatives who know what works and what doesn’t. Leniency, excuses and victimhood from perpetrators continues apace. Everybody else has to just suck it up. Including the victims of ‘the summer of love’.

    Like the german war criminals they get off lightly.
