The Center Party in Uppsala County, where the man worked, had previously requested that he be expelled from the party, and the man had also previously left his political assignments.

In 2018, the accused municipal politician must have bought sex from a then 16-year-old person on four occasions.

The meetings must have taken place at a hotel and among the evidence were, among other things, conversations on a chat app, bank statements and hotel bookings.

The municipal politician, who is active in Uppsala County, denies the crime.
