A Linköping man was sentenced on Monday to two years' imprisonment for raping his 16 year old daughter, reported Swedish Radio Östergötland.

The man admitted having sex with his daughter but claimed that it should have been regarded as sexual abuse. But the court shared the view of the prosecutor and sentenced the man under the new crime category of child rape.

The classification was introduced on April 1st and means that any sexual intercourse with a child should in principle always be considered rape.
