I promise never to pick fun at the Finnish court systems ever again…
A Norwegian woman is sentenced to nine months in jail for rape – this is the first conviction of its kind for the Scandinavian court system.
Back in January of 2004, a 31-year-old man reported to authorities that he had fallen asleep on the couch at a party and woke-up to find the woman performing oral sex on him.
Norwegian law states that all sexual acts with someone who is “unconscious or for other reasons unable to oppose the act” are considered rape.
The woman was sentenced to nine months in jail Wednesday and ordered to pay 40,000 Norwegian crowns ($6,355) in compensation.
This is the first conviction of a woman for rape in Norway.
