Two men were on Thursday pronounced guilty of sexual assault on New Year's Eve in Cologne and handed probationary sentences.
The Cologne court found a 21-year-old Iraqi guilty and handed down a one-year probationary sentence, reports Spiegel.
The court said it was evident that Hussein A. had kissed a young woman against her will and had licked her face.
"We see that as sexual assault," said judge Gerd Krämer. "He forced the victim to accept the kiss and lick."
