Earlier this year a man in his 50s was convicted on several counts of soliciting prostition and soliciting prostitution from minors.

But now he is getting over $58,000 in compensation from the Swedish state for the time he spent in arrest.

The man who was employed at a school in Gothenburg was thought to play a central role in a large sex trafficking ring that was discovered by police. He was charged with serious rape and illegal images of children among other things.

He was freed in court, but was later found guilty by the appeals court on several counts of soliciting prostition and soliciting prostitution from minors. He got a suspended sentence.

Other people where sentenced due to the police investigation into the sex trafficking ring. One man received 2 years prison for a “torture-like” rape at an office.

Another former lay judge and politician who was known for fighting for equality and women’s rights in sports, was also sentenced to prison after having raped and solicited prostitution from a minor during several years.

The man who was employed at a school however sought damages and money for lost income and slow justice process. The later was not approved by the court, however the Justice Chanchellor says the man has a right to compensation for suffering and loss of income.

“Taking into regard that the applicant has been suspected of a especially serious crime the compensation should be a higher amount than what is normally given to those arrested of similar length” said the Justice Chanchellor.

The compensation money will be paid by the state, in other words the tax payers money.
