The convicted sex offender Siegfried Mauser, former president of the Munich Academy of Music, has appealed to the Austrian President Alexander van der Bellen for his sentence to be suspended ‘by way of mercy’.

Mauser, 67, has spent the last four years since sentencing finding excuses to stay out of jail in Germany and Austria.

He is now claiming new grounds for challenging one of the trial witnesses.

He has until next week to present himself for a sentence of two years and nine months.


  • V. Lind says:

    Oh, toss this guy in the slammer and lose the key.

  • Achim Mentzel says:

    Hopefully van der Bellen will deny his plea for clemency! Lock this grabber up at last!

  • The View from America says:

    Yeah, good luck with that.

  • Gustavo says:

    Is he hoping to be put on a kind of Gottbegnadeten-Liste?

  • Brettermeier says:

    How pathetic.

  • henry williams says:

    they probably think it costs money to keep him in prison. it is cheaper to let him
    go free.

  • RW2013 says:

    If he had “presented himself” when it was time, he’d already be out!
