Back in February I posted about a gang of culture-enrichers in the Swedish city of Nässjö who set fire to a house with an elderly woman inside, burning her to death.
The Swedish “justice” system has now thrown the book at those rascally youths: the ringleader has been sentenced to four years in juvenile detention, and his accomplices were given similar sentences. Ha! That’ll teach those young whippersnappers a lesson!
17-year-old sentenced to 4 years in juvenile custody after arson
ANNEBERG: On Friday a 17-year-old boy was sentenced for setting a villa on fire in Anneberg in Nässjö municipality and killing a woman who lived there. SVT reports that he has been sentenced to four years in juvenile custody for murder and arson.
The crime occurred on February 1 of this year. The 17-year-old admitted that he set the fire which caused the total destruction of the house and the incineration of the woman inside, but maintains that he didn’t think the woman was still inside and that he had no intention of killing her.
The Eksjö District Court convicted him of murder and arson as well as aggravated theft, vandalism, and harassment, and the punishment is four years in juvenile detention. He will also pay 180,000 kronor in damages to the woman’s relatives.
“That is a reasonable punishment, which corresponds to life in prison for an adult,” says Prosecutor Helene Thomasson to SVT.
Before the fire started the 17-year-old and his two companions harassed the 68-year-old woman. They followed her to her home and shouted curse words at her and spat at her, among other things. The woman called the police, who came, but by then the trio had left.
The two accomplices have been sentenced to juvenile detention and youth service for harassment and also for violation of the law for protection from accidents, since they did not sound the alarm for the fire.
