A man in his 40s has been sentenced in Trøndelag District Court to nine years of preventive detention, with a minimum term of six years, for aggravated rape.
The rape took place in Trondheim in July this year. The district court has concluded that the rape took place in a particularly painful and offensive manner.
The verdict followed the plaintiff’s claim for detention for nine years, with a minimum term of six years. The convicted man has denied criminal guilt throughout the duration of the case. He has previously been convicted of aggravated rape and abuse of a minor in Sweden.
The court further stated that imprisonment could not be considered sufficient to prevent the convicted person from committing similar offenses in the future and decided that he should therefore be sentenced to preventive detention.
In addition to the detention, the convicted person has been sentenced to pay the aggrieved party more than NOK 200,000 in compensation. A five-year restraining order has also been issued.
