A Swedish court has sentenced a doctor to 10 years in prison for abducting a woman and locking her in a homemade bunker, but acquitted him of charges of aggravated rape.
In a unanimous verdict, Stockholm District Court said Martin Trenneborg meticulously planned the abduction over a long period of time and subjected the victim to serious risk by sedating her and keeping her locked up in a soundproof bunker for almost a week.
The 38-year-old doctor, who claimed he was suffering a mental disorder at the time, was ordered to pay 180,000 kronor (£15,000) in damages to the woman.
The court said it found insufficient evidence that Trenneborg subjected the victim to sexual intercourse when she was sedated.
