Law/Patents - Law (general) / Abbreviations
German term or phrase: HD / ND
For a court case, the defendant is accused of a long string of offences. Beside the first offence on the list is written (HD), and beside every other offence is written (ND1), (ND2), (ND3), ...... etc.

Does HD stand for Hauptdelikt?

And ND for Niederdelikt?

And would anyone know the common translations of such terms/abbreviations? Major offence, Minor offence 1, Minor offence 2 etc...?

Explanation:
I tend to agree with Kim that "ND" most likely mean "Nebendelikt."
