Property damage charges and student residence permit extension

3 posts in this topic

Good day to all you lovely people of this forum. I hope you can give me a piece of advice on my situation.

So, I am a student enrolled in a german university, and, long story short, I messed up big time. While visiting my friend I had way too much to drink and went into a drunken rage. At some point I stormed outside and caused a ruckus there, which prompted a scared neighbor to call police on me. Thankfully, by the time they arrived, I calmed down, so there was no arrest and a friend of mine drove me home. One week passes, and I get a questioning letter stating that im charged with Sachbeschädigung auf Straßen Wegen und Plätzen. I also want to note that, according to my friend, I did not do any significant damage outside of the house. From what I understand, this most likely entails a fine and a misdemeanor record, so here are my questions:

- Will this incident prevent me from extending my student residence permit? I will have to apply for it in about a year from now.

- Will it impact my chances of getting a working permit after I finish my studies?

Thanks in advance to everyone who answers here.

"While visiting my friend I had way too much to drink and went into a drunken rage" sorry but being drunk doesn't excuse you from the full force of the law . Probably both points will be saved on your record

Actually, it does. Under German law, intoxication is strafmildernd for all offenses except DUI.

Your concern is palpable, but nothing will go on his record if he isn't sentenced to 90 or more Tagessätze. A little drunken damage to public property is nowhere near enough for that.
