RAPE

Father jailed for rape of young daughters

A 62-year-old man from Drammen in southern Norway has received a 7-year jail sentence after he was found guilty of sexually abusing his two young daughters.

Follo district court found the man guilty of several counts of rape and sexual assault perpetrated in 2005 against his then 12-year-old and 5-year-old daughters, newspaper Dagbladet reports.

The 62-year-old, a disabled man with a string of previous criminal convictions, also has other children and has been married five times, the newspaper said.

Police were able to tie the man to the crimes after retrieving a computer, a memory stick and a memory card during a raid on his home.

He denied committing the offences and told the court the older girl’s claims were financially motivated.

The district court, however, found the accounts of both girls to be credible and ordered their father to pay each of them non-pecuniary damages of 200,000 kroner ($33,600).

"But we know nothing about whether she has been stunned by drugs. She remembers very little and has had a blackout for several hours." 
 
She said that she had now banned the woman from drinking alcohol . 
 
"Of course we are all very sad on the Norwegian student's behalf," she told the paper. "And we have prohibited that she drink alcohol again while she's on the course." 
 
The school has encouraged the woman, who comes from Bergen, to report the rape to the Spanish police.
