26-01-2012

A Prague city court has dealt a ten-year prison sentence to a man charged with brutally raping a woman in the center of town. The incident happened last September after the victim had asked the man for directions. He is charged with raping her repeatedly over the course of three hours in a house entrance not far from Wenceslas Square. Although the girl had shouted for help, no one called the police. The victim is currently in psychological care. Court psychiatrists have stated that the defendant is most likely a repeat offender. The verdict is not final and can still be appealed.
