The Supreme Court has concluded that the two youngsters have to serve time in prison for sexual assault.

The two are found guilty of gang rape of a  boy of the same age and sentenced to prison for four years. Gulating crown court of Appeal concluded that the two years of the sentence should be changed into a suspended sentence, while the Supreme Court changed this to three years for both of them. The boys were 16 years old when the assault took place and they are now over 17 years old.
One of counsels of the two boys , Odd Rune Torstrup, said according to Stavanger Aftenblad that the youth sentence should have been used. But the Supreme Court points out that the assault is too serious for the youth sentence, which means that the sentence will be carried out outside of prison, to be used.
