Josef Fritzl could be a free man in a few years


Jozef Fricl

Josef Fritzl, one of the most famous prisoners in Austria, could be released in a few years.

The 86-year-old is currently in Stein Prison.

Fritzl became known around the world when it was revealed that he kept his daughter locked up in the basement for more than two decades, where he raped her and made her seven children.

Three of those children were also kept in the basement for years.

For these crimes, which entered the criminal annals, in 2009 he was sentenced to life imprisonment and sent to an institution for mentally disturbed criminals.

The competent judge of the provincial court in Krems has now ordered that the measure of detention in the institution for mentally disturbed criminals be terminated from December 1, which has yet to be decided by the competent authorities.

That would mean that Fricl is transferred to a prison block for socialization.

If the judge’s decision were applied, it would mean that Fricl could be released after 15 years in prison.
