Frauenrechtlerin Alice Schwarzer stellte sich an die Seite von Kachelmanns Ex-Freundin.

Die Nebenklägerin habe "sehr überzeugend dargelegt, dass sie vielleicht die Wahrheit gesagt habe". Der Prozess habe gezeigt, dass Kachelmann "nicht nur diese Frau gezielt manipuliert hat". "Er kommt nicht ins Gefängnis, es bleibt alles offen", sagte Schwarzer.
