The Satakunta district court has sentenced a Pori man to a 16-month prison sentence following his conviction for sexual abuse of two children, as well as attempted sexual abuse, alcohol offences and illegal sales of cigarettes.

The ruling also relates to a suspended prison sentence the man received for sexual abuse of a minor and alcohol offences two years ago.

The 68-year-old had sold and provided cigarettes and alcohol to underaged children and lured them to his home. The youngest of his victims was 10 years old.

The man denied committing the sex crimes but the court found him guilty. However a separate charge of assault was dismissed. The prosecution justified the assault charge by arguing that the boys allegedly became inebriated from the alcohol they drank. The court ruled that it was not possible to determine the degree of inebriation and the possible impact on their health.

The court ordered part of the sentence to be sealed.
