Detention matters

In the case of accusations of certain serious offenses or the existence of other grounds for detention, such as flight, risk of flight, risk of concealment, pre-trial detention can in principle be ordered by the magistrate.

Pre-trial detention is a particularly drastic means, as detention can be ordered despite the presumption of innocence.


We are committed to ensuring that there is no arrest warrant against you. What is important here is that we can refute the assumption of the reasons for detention. This is possible through certain requirements and by presenting the life situation.

If the detention judge does not follow our argumentation, it must be examined whether an appeal against the detention should be filed, for which the detention judge is no longer responsible, but rather the Higher Regional Court.


In some cases, the investigating judges tend to issue arrest warrants too quickly, which then have to be overturned by the Higher Regional Court.
