A man in the late 30's was convicted of arresting a family member about 20 years ago, from her age of five to ten years old.
The man has been sentenced to two years in prison at the Gulating Court of Appeal for repeated sexual assault by a minor, writes Bergens Tidende. One of the years is conditional.
It was not until 2015 that the woman told me what had happened when the girl was on a family farm in Sogn og Fjordane between 1998 and 2002. That man was then in the late teens.
He was acquitted for the first time in the district court of Sogn og Fjordane, who claimed that it could not be proven that he had sexual relations with the girl and that it was not just sexual acts in the form of a vote. The latter has a two-year pension rule. But after he was acquitted, he sent the woman a letter in which he did not ask for forgiveness, but apologized & # 39 ;. This letter helps to substantiate the woman's statement, according to the Court of Appeal.
In adulthood, the woman has developed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, which the court believes is likely and the culprit is guilty, so he has to pay 425,000 for rehabilitation and compensation to the woman.
