Muslim migrant fights 2-month sentence after raping two underage Swedish girls. Thinks punishment is too severe

Gatestone -- 

A Syrian migrant who was recently sentenced by a Swedish court to two months in prison for brutally raping a 13-year-old girl in a school toilet and sexually abusing a 14-year-old victim has yesterday appealed the verdict.

His lawyer wants the former refugee, who is either 18 or 19 years old, set free immediately. Alternatively, the serial child rapist should be sentenced to a much lighter sentence, the lawyer has stated according to Sveriges Radio.

The attorney asked for another ruling in the case because his client was supposedly ‘only’ 17 years old when committing the crimes, that were carried out with just a few weeks in between.

During the initial trial against the youth, it appeared that he was registered as 18 years of age when entering Sweden. However, the court subsequently raised questions. Freshly produced documents from the assailant’s home country somehow ‘proved’ to the judges that he was actually one year younger than previously stated, turning him into a minor at the times of the rapes.
