High Profile Rapists Jailed

2 men accused of rape in one of Sweden’s highest profile date rape cases in recent years have been found guilty by the High Court.

The two men, aged 21 and 25, had been freed in an lower court ruling, causing an outcry in parts of the Swedish media.

The High Court judged however that that the two men, well known figures in Stockholm’s nightlife, must have known that the sex wasn’t consensual and that a no is a no, no matter when it comes. They have now been sentenced to 4 years imprisonment. The 19 year old victim is still in therapy following the attack.

Lawyers for the pair say they are sure their clients will want to appeal.
