Former Munich Music Academy Head Jailed On Sexual Assault Charges
The former president of the Munich Music Academy, Siegfried Mauser, has been sentenced to 2 years and 9 months imprisonment
The former President of the Munich Music Academy, in Germany, has today been sentenced to 2 years and 9 months imprisonment - after a Munich court found him guilty of three counts of sexual coercion.
63-year-old Siegfried Mauser was found guilty of forcing sexual contact on an unnamed female opera singer between 2007 and 2013.
The prosecution also accused him of raping another woman in 2004, during a job interview at the conservatory - but the charge was not proven.
Mauser had argued the advances to both women were never made against their will.
