Man fined for 52-day long illegal sex period with girlfriend
A Zurich court expressed regret it was forced to punish a 24-year-old man for sexual relations with a child – but pointed out the law was the law.
The man, when he was 20 years old had sex with his girlfriend who was only 19 days short of her 16th birthday. If he’d waited, there would have been no legal problem.
In addition, if the man had had sex with her 32 days earlier, when he was 19 – there also wouldn’t have been a problem, as Swiss law doesn’t punish sex between minors.
It was only an issue for a brief 52 days.
The court fined the man – but waived costs.
