Die hypothetische Einwilligung im Strafrecht: Überlegungen by Jan Felix Sturm

By Jan Felix Sturm

Die hypothetische Einwilligung ist als strafbarkeitseinschränkende Figur in der Rechtsprechung zum Arztstrafrecht fest etabliert, in der Literatur jedoch hoch umstritten. Lässt sie sich als Ausdruck einer allgemeinen dogmatischen Struktur verstehen, nämlich als Baustein einer Lehre von der objektiven Zurechnung auf Rechtswidrigkeitsebene? Zur Beantwortung dieser Kernfrage setzt Jan Felix Sturm bei den Grundlagen der Zurechnungslehre an und führt den Streit um die Anerkennung der hypothetischen Einwilligung auf unterschiedliche Autonomieverständnisse zurück. Breiteren Raum als in der bisherigen Diskussion nehmen dabei Überlegungen zur Übertragbarkeit der hypothetischen Einwilligung auf Gebiete außerhalb des Arztstrafrechts ein. Im Ergebnis bewertet der Autor die hypothetische Einwilligung in den untersuchten Feldern kritisch - nicht aber, weil ihre Integration in das Strafrechtssystem konstruktiv ausgeschlossen wäre, sondern wegen des favorisierten Autonomieverständnisses.

Das Geständnis (Jus Poenale) (German Edition) by Jens Andreas Sickor

By Jens Andreas Sickor

Obwohl in der Praxis von überragender Bedeutung, enthält das Strafprozessrecht keine konkreten Vorgaben zum Umgang mit einem Geständnis des Beschuldigten. Die Rechtsnatur des Geständnisses bestimmt Jens Andreas Sickor deshalb ausgehend von rechtshistorischen und rechtsvergleichenden Betrachtungen sowie unter Rückgriff auf die Prozessstruktur und das Beweisrecht der StPO. Zugleich unterzieht er den Umgang der Strafverfahrenspraxis mit dem Geständnis einer kritischen Betrachtung. Dazu zählen z.B. die Tauglichkeit des Geständnisses als 'Wahrheitsgewinnungsmittel', die - auch durch Strafverfolgungsorgane gesetzten - Ursachen für Falschgeständnisse sowie die Legitimierbarkeit und die Gefahren der strafmildernden Berücksichtigung eines Geständnisses. Besonderes Augenmerk wird auf die Folgen des Verständigungsverfahrens (§ 257c StPO) sowie auf die Bedeutung des Geständnisses in Kronzeugenregelungen gelegt.
