Sweden: Man sexually assaulted jogging woman – Gets only 10 months prison

The Swedish court decided to give the suspect a lower sentence because he wanted to “help” the victim afterwards and because he was suffering from mental illness.

It was during an evening in January that a woman was going on a jogging run in Bromma in western Stockholm.

She was listening to music when she all of a sudden was attacked from behind. The attacker pulled her down to the ground then took her clothes off and tried to sexually assault her.

The woman was fighting with the masked man for several minutes according to her estimation, and she received several injuries. Her jaw was twisted out of joint.

In an survival attempt, the woman pretended to offer the man voluntary sex, after which the man calmed down. She could then call an ambulance.

During this, the man was sitting beside her and picking away rubbish and leafes that had got entangled in her hair during the struggle.

The police arrested the man nearby and was originally prosecuted for attempted rape. However, the court ruled that it couldn’t be concluded that the man had intention of raping the woman, so instead he was convicted of sexual assault and assault.

Normally the sentence for this crime in Sweden would be 1 year and 9 months prison, but because of the attacker having a mental disorder and because he “wanted to stay there and help her as long as she was on the scene” he only got 10 months in prison.

“I think it is sick that one can damage me for the rest of my life, and that there is barely any consequences. This is not justice. One minimizes what I have been through and I am very angry because of it” said the victim.

“He will be released in just a few months, and then he can attack someone else again. I still suffer from migraine and pain in my jaw” the victim says.

She further tells of having nightmares and waking in the middle of night screaming for help. She also tells that she is not going out alone anymore.
