6. Legal practice of the Imperial Royal County Court of Debrecen (1853-1861)

Szabó Zsanett

In this study, I would like to present the criminal law practice in the period of neoabsolutism of the Imperial Royal County Court of Debrecen. In this period, the Austrian Penal Code was in force in Hungary, so the primary aspect of my research is how the provisions of the Code were enforced in practice. On the other hand, I try to answer questions about which crimes have occurred most often, what were the most common types of offenses, what characterized the perpetrators’ image, and finally what the penalties were imposed in the specified period.
