Rapists get 44 years’ jail

2008-01-27 00:00

Three young rapists and armed robbers convicted of a crime spree and the gang rape of two foreign missionaries at Oslo Beach on June 30, 2006, were each sentenced to an effective 44 years in prison yesterday.

Legal sources said later that the effect of the total sentences imposed is equivalent to the time the accused would have been required to serve had they been sentenced to life terms.
