STOCKHOLM: A Swedish court on Friday sentenced a male daycare worker to six and a half years in prison for four cases of rape and 20 cases of sexual assault against toddlers aged one to three in his charge. The 40-year-old man, who worked at 40 different daycares in the southern municipality of Kristianstad as a temp agency employee, pleaded guilty to the charges, a statement from the Kristianstad district court said. The assaults took place at eight of the daycares where he worked from March 2014 until June 2015. “The man sexually abused several girls during diaper changes. The girls were between one and three years old. The 40-year-old, documented the abuses himself with his mobile phone camera,” the court said. “The crimes are considered aggravated because of the way he carried them out, the fact that he abused his position as a child minder, and that he abused the trust he enjoyed,” it added.
