The court sentenced Carlos for attempted grievous bodily harm and other offences, to imprisonment for a term of 4 years and 9 months. On custody, it is waived. The sentence of imprisonment is deferred in favor of a stationary measure, called the small custody.
For professionals in the field of justice has taken the court a reasonable decision. "The judgment is in line with my expectations, and I'm not surprised," said Andreas Brunner, a former chief Prosecutor of the Canton of Zurich. Now, the office for justice had called for law enforcement to be a "creative idea". If the stationary measure is going to change Carlos’ current setting is difficult to answer. The experience have shown that people, who rejected an initial therapy, would participate with the time, but still such.
"Neither custody nor free country experiment"
For the forensic psychiatrist Frank Urbaniok, the court has placed on the "principle of hope" and the young man again, given a Chance. The judgment is psychologically understandable: Neither custody of, nor is it a "free country experiment," which would expose the population risk. Carlos should now show in the therapy of a minimal cooperation and, most important, to violence without. For Urbaniok is also important that Carlos is no justice is the victim and the penal institutions are no no-go areas. "Here, the court has set a clear signal."
Also, for the criminal law Professor, and SP-councillor Daniel Jositsch the prison is now required. To break the deadlock in the standoff that would be a possibility that Carlos would sit in the Romandie the penalty, he is bilingual. There, he could not have been more the "celebrity Status" as in Zurich and would need to be in a new environment to prove their worth.
"Back on the field 1"
Brigitte Hürlimann, court reporter for the "Republic" welcomes the fact that out of custody, there was no question, although the attempted heavy twill was a violation been the occasion of offence in the affirmative. With this judgment, it was back to square 1, because the prison would now have to perform the stationary action. The probability that the downward spiral rotate within a closed institution is large. "The judgment is well-intentioned, but it is questionable whether it can solve the Problem; there's already a small miracle has to happen."
The defenders of Carlos did not want to comment on the decision, also not to a possible appeal. Prosecutor Ulrich Krättli explained in connection to the "view" that the court cling to the last straw to bring Carlos to his senses.
