An ice hockey referee from Stockholm has been sentenced to jail for the rape and sexual assault of a teenage boy.

The referee came into contact with the boy during a hockey training session, Aftonbladet reports. They became acquainted, and the man later visited the boy's home. When he saw that the boy was home alone he sexually assaulted him.

The man has also been convicted of sexual molestation and serious child porn offences. The referee had sent photos of himself to another teenage boy. Police searches of the man's home found large numbers of pornographic films and images featuring children, Aftonbladet reports.

The man, who denies raping the boy, was sentenced to two years and eight months imprisonment for rape, sexual assault and serious child porn offences.
