The man denies all charges, which include a suggestion that the trainee dance naked in the kitchen in order to ensure a positive assessment of her traineeship.
According to the charge sheet, he is furthermore alleged to have stroked her bottom and legs, asked detailed questions about her sex life, and showed her a picture of his sexual organ.
Despite the man’s denials, relatives, friends and colleagues are all set to testify in the court trial in defence of the 17-year-old girl’s version of events and tell the court how badly the girl felt during her employment, according to the local Borås Tidning (BT) daily.
The man has furthermore denied that he proposed having sex with the girl, and that he suggested she join him in sexual acts with other men.
The prosecutor has decided to press charges against the man for sexual molestation, based on the witness accounts and the teenager’s version of events.
