German Catholic priest said he didn't know the Norwegian age of sexual consent was 16 when he had sex with a 15-year-old girl. The priest, who is in his early 30s, told a court he didn't realize he was breaking the law when he had a sexual relationship with the girl, whom he called "the love of my life."
"I did not know that the age of consent was 16 years old in Norway. In my home country of Germany it is 14 years old," the priest said.
The crime only carries a six months sentence and they will not release his name out of concerns over privacy. This is pointless.
