Several men have been convicted of cybercrime in recent months. On Tuesday, the trial begins of a 27-year-old Oslo man accused of assault against 53 girls.
A man, accused of threats, rape, and sexual assault of 53 girls aged between 12 and 17 will be brought to justice in Oslo District Court. The trial will last for two months, until the 23rd of June. Violation continued for more than two years.
Criminal liability can constitute imprisonment for up to 21 years. Absence of physical contact between indicted and perpetrators. distinguishes this particulat case from the other cases of net sex crimes, and it is solely so-called network abuse in this case.
The 27-year-old man fraudulently made young girls send him private pictures, then threatened to post those pictures on the internet, also he jeopardized them to commit actions that are equivalent to sexual intercourse. That is defined as rape by law.
This man worked as an activity manager at a primary school, but none of the victims were of primary school age. The man’s defence lawyer, Jorgen Nicolai Hilsen Mowinckel, informed that his client had mainly admitted what he is charged with.
Also recently several men have been condemned to detention, and long jail time for network abuse in similar cases.
