A 23 year old man has been sentenced to two months in prison for breaking and entering into the sewage system in Jönköping.

He had appealed against the verdict by Jönköping district court but the Göta Court of Appeal upheld the decision.

In the summer the man and a friend found their way into the town's sewers. But after a while their escapade took a turn for the worse: they were unable to find their way out and were forced to ring for help from their mobile phones.

They were originally sentenced in August.
