A man in his early 20s has been sentenced to six months of unconditional imprisonment for sending pictures of his genitals to an underage girl.
The photos were sent in the period between the summer of 2017, when the girl was 14 years old, and the autumn of 2019, according to newspaper Telemarksavisa.
The man confessed to the act.
While appearing in front of the Nedre Telemark District Court, he estimated that he sent between ten and 90 photos to the girl.
He explained that he got to know the girl through social media and that she didn’t say “yes” or “no” when he asked if she wanted the pictures.
The girl told the court that the pictures became annoying already during the first two weeks.
The man, who has been convicted of similar offenses twice before, has been found criminally sane.
However, the court decreased the sentence because the man has a severe mental illness.
The unanimous verdict stated that it would be desirable for the man to receive the help that could help him end his “frightening, abusive, and troublesome behavior.”
