The Syrian Huseein S. (31 years old) has to serve 3 years and 9 months in prison, his compatriot Fadi A. (16 years old) was sentenced to one year on probation.
The two had previously smoked marijuana together with two Stralsund girls in 2019, after which the 12- and 16-year-old were raped by them.
At the trial, the defendants complained that they had had “a difficult time” in Syria. S. also said that the girls had been provoked because they had been sitting with him late at night.
The 16-year-old was given a lenient sentence because he turned himself in after the crime and was on drugs. However, in addition to his sentence, he will have to do 250 hours of community service and start an education.
