Presenter Amira Pocher (30) and her husband, comedian Oliver Pocher (44), reported to the Cologne district court as witnesses of a break-in in a house they once lived in. Amira Pocher in particular spoke about the consequences that the incident had for her, not only materially. "I have two small children, and I haven't had a quiet night since then," said the 30-year-old on the witness stand on Wednesday. The material damage that was caused is now "completely irrelevant". "It's this fear," said Pocher.
The process was about a burglary in January 2022 in Cologne. A man was accused of whom the court had different personal information. In the process, he confessed to having entered the premises that the Pochers occupied at the time. Among other things, he stole jewelry.
Amira and Oliver Pocher reported about the burglary shortly after the fact in a podcast. According to the court, the incident occurred at a time when the family had temporarily lived in the house of singer Pietro Lombardi.
After a two-and-a-half-hour trial, the court sentenced the accused to one-and-a-half years in prison without parole. Judge Rolf Krebber also justified the sentence with the psychological long-term consequences for the Pochers. "The horror? With Mrs. Pocher, it's still in her limbs today, that was clearly noticeable," he said.
