Stockholm bartender jailed for pimping

A 35-year-old bartender has been sentenced to imprisonment for the pimping of 118 Swedish women for sex buyers in Stockholm.

The man marketed the women through his website, according to a report in the newspaper Metro.

The women were located across Sweden and customers were able to make a selection according to geography and preference.

District prosecutor Marie Lind Thomsen argued that the pimping offences should be classified as aggravated but Stockholm district court was satisfied with the lesser charge of pimping.

The court ruled that as the adverts had not generated a large sum of money and that the man’s apartment had only been occasionally used for the sex meetings, he should be convicted on the lesser charge.

The 35-year-old has been sentenced to imprisonment for one year.
