A 52-year-old Danish woman has been sentenced by a court to a three-month conditional sentence after she was found guilty of engaging in sexual relations with an underage asylum seeker.
The 52-year-old was convicted of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male asylum seeker whom she befriended working at a home for children in Tullebølle. The woman was employed as a teaching assistant at the children’s home and will also have to pay 10,000 Danish krone (£1,200) in compensation to the teenager, Danish public broadcaster DR reports.
According to prosecutors, the 52-year-old had sexual intercourse with the young asylum seeker in her car on two separate occasions in late January to early February of last year.
The woman testified that the sexual relations between her and the unaccompanied minor were totally consensual claiming the asylum seeker had initiated the sexual relations.
The 17-year-old gave a different account of the events saying that the woman forced herself on him and that he was too afraid to say no because he thought she might use her power to have him deported.
“I had been in Denmark for a month and a half, could not speak and did not know what to do or who I could tell,” he told the court.
Prosecutor Kirsten Flummer said she was satisfied with the verdict in the case and the lawyer for the woman, Anne-Birgitte Bjerre-Olsen, said her client was simply relieved the case was over. “It has been extremely stressful for my client, and it is a big relief that it’s done,” she said.

The case is not the first time female migrant workers have been accused of trying to take advantage of young migrant men. Last year, it was revealed that British pro-migrant volunteers were sexually exploiting migrant men, as well as underage boys, at the former Calais Jungle migrant camp.
In Austria, a trend has emerged of older women sexually exploiting young migrant men whom the men refer to as “Sugar Mamas”. The older women give the young migrants money and a place to live, often in exchange for sex.
