A man from central Sweden has been convicted of raping a 12-year-old girl - and filming the incident on his phone.

A 27-year-old man was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday evening for two incidents of rape against an underage girl in Huddinge, south of Stockholm.

The man initially contacted the girl via an online forum, newspaper Mitt I reported. In early 2013 he allegedly raped the girl when they met in the woods, and filmed the attack.

The district court concluded that the man realized the girl was under 15, the legal age of consent.
