A court in Finnmark sentenced the 41 year old politician to six months in jail, and he has to pay the girl 50 000 kroner in compensation. He will also pay kr 3.000 in costs.
The affair between the girl and the former mayor, was discovered one year ago. Immediately the news broke out about the affair, the police started their investigations.
The 41 year old had denied the charge, but when he was confronted with DNA results, he changed his story by saying “it was a kind of love relationship, and not misuse of an under age girl.”
Immediately it was discovered he had misused the under age girl, he lost all his political positions. Now he has now also been suspended from his job.
While sentencing the former mayor, the court criticised the fact that he knew the girl was under age, and yet he went ahead to have sex with her six times between the 5th and 27 December 2005. He admitted in court that he had sex with the young girl without a condom.
While investigating the case against the former mayor, the police discovered other unreported cases that has resulted in convictions of 18 men for having had sexual relationships with under age girls in the area.
