Law Governing Execution of Sentences / Defense in Enforcement of Sentences
Support of the imprisoned client with regard to the execution of sentences and enforcement of sentences is included as one of the fundamental tasks of a defense lawyer and raises a number of factual and legal challenges for the defense lawyer. On the one hand, there is the assistance and support of the imprisoned client and his/her family, in particular, if the client is imprisoned for the first time. From a legal viewpoint, the possibilities of the suspension or the interruption of the sentence are to be regularly examined as well as the supervision of the respective imprisonment conditions and, if applicable, working toward an early release from imprisonment. With all these factors, it must always be required to keep in mind the basic rights of the prisoner because the degree between measures which are within the framework of the restrictions of basic constitutional rights permitted by law and violations of the basic rights of the prisoner is narrow.
