Drammen rapist appeals sentence

24-year-old questions extent of injuries.



A man convicted of raping three women in Sandvika and Drammen in Østlandet over a period of six years has lodged an appeal against his sentence.

At his trial on 31 May the now 24-year-old from Kosovo didn’t entirely admit his guilt and was given a 12-year custodial prison term, but disagrees with the court’s findings.

He has also been charged with causing bodily harm and aggravated robbery in connection with the rapes, and also faces the maximum sentence of 21 years because the woman from Sandvika was seriously injured.

His appeal is based on grounds that one of the rapes wasn’t completed, as well as questioning the degree to which another of his other victims was injured.

“It applies to the severity of psychological damage he caused his victim, as well as that the act was committed several years ago. My client also denies having consumated one of the other rapes, whilst the aggrieved party has a different perception of what occurred,” his lawyer Lars Engdal tells NRK.

The man has been in jail since his arrest a few days after he committed his last rape on 30 May last year, and police superintendant Thor Ingolf Johansen said at the time they were amongst the worst he’d ever experienced in Drammen.
