Court overturns Muslim migrant’s conviction for child rape, ruling he didn’t know the girl was 13.

A Swedish appeals court has overturned an Afghan migrant’s conviction for violently raping a child, ruling that he did not know the girl’s real age despite inputting it when ordering her a bus ticket.

The Afghan man, who is in his 20s, was convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl earlier this year and sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison, a fine, and deportation.

A ruling by the Göta Court of Appeal has completely overturned the sentence and ordered the migrant be set free. The court said that it had not been proven that he did not know the actual age of the girl, Nyheter Idag reports.

According to court records, the Afghan met the child on social media and arranged to meet her in person, buying her a bus ticket. The minor later came to the man’s residence and the pair had sex, but she later reported the Afghan for rape.

The migrant claimed he did not know the girl’s age, but she testified in court that she had repeatedly told the migrant how old she was.

When ordering the bus ticket, the migrant put down her real age but later claimed he did so to get a discount — and that it was merely a coincidence he wrote 13.
