What is the maximum penalty for murder in germany? I'm not a killer but someone told me that they're maximum sentence for murder is only 15 years
Dear customer,thank you for using JustAnswer.In Germany it is regulated by law, that there is a lifetime sentence for murder. That means, that after 15 years the authorities check up whether the convict may be released or not. There is the possibility for the court to give an order that the convict must not be released after 15 years. That means that the offender has committed a murder that is very grave.I hope that was helpfulKind regardsD. BettingerAttorney41087.2876170139
