A man in his sixties has been sentenced to ten years in prison for numerous sexual offenses against a minor girl.

The crime series began in 2017. The verdict shows that the girl has been under the age of 16 this year as well.

According to the Itä-Uusimaa District Court, Jarmo Tapani Ojanen, 61, was guilty of aggravated sexual exploitation of a child, several aggravated rapes, aggravated child rape and possession of an image depicting a child who violates sexual morality.

Aggravated child rape has only been used as a criminal offense since last spring.

According to the district court, sexual offenses have involved threatening violence, using violence, and putting a girl in a state of fear.

It is possible to appeal against the judgment to the Court of Appeal.
