It happened shortly before the completion of his apprenticeship as a health professional. However, instead of relying on the final exam, sat, 27-year-old Lucerne eleven weeks in detention. He lost his apprenticeship and was held since then – five and a half years after the incident in a Zurich regional care center – not in regular employment. He must of social assistance and a monthly grant of 300 francs of life, which he receives as a trainee in a start - up and consulting.
Before the high court, he hoped on Monday only to finally come to an end due to the long duration hardly more comprehensible method. He also wanted to be a reproach acquitted, he has denied from the beginning, vehemently.
In March 2013, the accusation is demented, one of the heaviest and high-patient, the patient kept the showers a "very hot item, presumably a hair dryer" on the inner side of the thigh, and thus a 6 times 5 centimeters large burn injury caused.
Pure circumstantial process
Before the high court of Lucerne-in-law to the allegations, as has already been before the district court of Bülach, had been sentenced in March of this year, to a conditional monetary penalty of 150 daily rates à 30 francs. His lawyer demanded a re-acquittal.
There is a lack of ultimate evidence, and the circumstantial evidence was not sufficient to eliminate the doubt as to the guilt of his client. There are three equivalent theories, such as the injury could be caused, the lawyer said. In other words: It was a clear case of the principle "in dubio pro reo" (in doubt for the accused).
in addition to the burning, a scalding is possible. The woman had been spilled earlier hot drinks. Also possible to have an allergic reaction to specific patches that abrasions are treated. The woman had known that, you'll scratch again and again. "In good conscience," says the defender, "can we opt for not a theory."
The desire of the accused to leave the courtroom with a white vest, did not meet the Supreme court. It, the district affirmed the judgment in all respects. The injury was created at a time, to which the 27-Year-old woman was in the shower and used. A scald can be excluded, because otherwise the pants of the woman would need to have the appropriate traces. According to the report, the shape of the injury pointed to the fact that the woman had come with a hot object in contact with it.
the judgment of The Supreme court can be at the Federal court of appeal. (Tages-Anzeiger)
