Norway woman convicted for raping a man. post #1  quote:



The 31-year-old man fell asleep on a sofa at a party in January last year and told the court in the western city of Bergen he woke to find the 23-year-old woman was having oral sex with him.

Under Norwegian law, all sexual acts with someone who is "unconscious or for other reasons unable to oppose the act" are considered rape.

The court sentenced the woman on Wednesday to nine months in jail and ordered her to pay 40,000 Norwegian crowns ($6,355) in compensation.

"This is a very harsh sentence," the woman's lawyer, Per Magne Kristiansen, told the Norwegian news agency NTB. The woman argued the man had been awake and consented.

The prosecutor had sought a 10-month sentence and argued the court should not be more lenient with a woman than a man. It was Norway's first conviction of a woman for rape.

Norway has long traditions of equality -- 40 percent of the cabinet of Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik, for instance, are women.

Now that is more like it. Women shouldn't be allowed to get away with such stuff. My congratulations to that man. I wonder if she was hot or ugly? That can be a determining factor in whether you feel violated or not.

9 months in jail doesnt seem all that harsh to me...

If this were a man sodomizing a woman, in this country at least he would be given years to serve in jail...not nine months and a compensation amount.

Equality in Norway? Does a man who sodomizes a woman in Norway only get convicted for nine months? Why do I not buy that?

Seems to me that she got off with a very light sentence.

I suppose the sentence is different for sodomizing.

Yeah, if you wake up at a party and see Cindy Crawford's face in your lap, I don't think you're gonna call the fuzz.

I bet she had a hair-lip.
