Few child sex buyers go to jail

Published måndag 7 maj 2012 kl 10.36

The newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports that few men buying sex from minors in Sweden are caught, and almost none are sent to prison.

In its continuing series about underage prostitution in this country, the newspaper cites statistics from the National Crime Prevention Council, revealing that in Stockholm County between 2006 and 2010 there were just 175 cases reported of  the child sex trade.  Only seven cases led to a conviction, and just one to a prison sentence.

In the country at large during the same period there were 26 conviction following 542 complaints.

The survey starts the year after the maximum sentence for buying sex from a minor was changed from six months imprisonment to two years.
