The boy stood accused of persuading, or trying to persuade, the girls to pose in front of a web camera, according to a report in the Borås Tidning daily.

The boy has been now been convicted for crimes including the gross exploitation of a child for sexual posing and child pornography crimes, the newspaper reported.

The boy has also been convicted of possessing child pornography on his home computer.

The 16-year-old, who was convicted at Borås district court on Friday, has been ordered to pay a total of 25,000 kronor ($3,720) in damages to the seven girls.

He was furthermore instructed to pay a charge of 500 kronor to the Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority (Brottsoffermyndigheten).

The boy has furthermore been placed under probation.

The crime classified as exploitation of a child for sexual posing has been framed in Swedish law since 2005. If the crime is considered aggravated the offence carries a minimum prison sentence of six months and a maximum of six years.

Now if only punishment were to follow on conviction in this country . . . .

Guess who is going to end up paying the 25,000? If his parents don't cough up, the taxpayers will foot the bill via Brottsoffermyndigheten.

A "charge" of 500? What's that, a weeks pocket money? Risible!

Probation, we all know what that amounts to in Sweden.

If this kid is already into child porn at the age of 16, he will pose a serious threat to children as an adult. For the rest of his life, unless he is locked up or kept under GPS surveillance.

young and nasty boy. the money wont pain him and the court knows that bcos he is not the one to pay. better 6months jail if it wont be expensive to the state.

@gpafledthis:

Couldn't disagree more with you. There's quite a bit of difference between 10-13 year-olds and a 16 y.o. This isn't the same as a 26 y.o. man and a 20-23 y.o. woman. If the girls were of age 16 or older, then your comments might have some validity, especially since he wasn't trying to hide his intent; however, such isn't the case and the punishment is very light for the crime.

The boy should beg to go to prison, and for a long time too, since surely one of the fathers of one of the girls will find a discrete and permanent way to make sure he will never do such a thing again ...
