An Iranian has been found guilty of raping a young woman on her way home.Let's hope they win their appeal.
The 33-year-old man admitted the sex attack on the 19-year-old in Kaprun, Salzburg, one night last May. The defendant, however, denied having raped a 16-year-old girl in Zell am See in July.
A court in Salzburg sentenced the kitchen worker to 18 months in prison today (Weds).
The accused accepted the sentence. The verdict is, however, not yet legally binding as prosecutors decided to appeal it for being too low considering that the man could have faced up to 10 years in jail.
I always find it upsetting when the authorities, having failed the victim already by letting such a dangerous individual roam the country at will, further insult them by handing down such a paltry sentence.
