Upon discovering the prank, the woman reported the man with whom she had been married for a few years to police.
She also broke off the relationship.
The man has admitted to the caper, but said during the trial held in Sundsvall District Court that his wife was in on the idea, something she denies.
The court believed the woman’s account of events more than that offered by her husband.
The man, who was slapped with heavy fines for the incident, was also convicted for child pornography crimes after police found pictures of naked children on his computer.
