AMMAN – The Criminal Court has sentenced a 22-year-old man to 6 years and 8 months in prison after convicting him of engaging in consensual sex with a minor in November 2006 in an Amman neighbourhood.
The tribunal declared Khalid I., a Zarqa resident, guilty of engaging in sexual activities with his 17-year-old female relative 83 times in a tent he erected on a main road.
Court transcripts said the defendant wanted to marry the minor but her family refused so he decided to engage in sexual activities with the girl to force her family to accept the marriage.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The defendant and the minor fled together from their homes in Zarqa on November 26 and headed to Amman where they erected a tent and lived together for 7 months before the matter was exposed,Ã¢â‚¬Â the court said.
The defendant had entered a guilty plea in previous court sessions, informing the judges that he committed these acts to force her family to let their daughter marry him. [source]
You would think that more people would’ve noticed a young couple who’ve pitched a tent on the side of a main road in Amman for 7 months, whilst having that much sex.
Come to think of it, why were they even keeping count?
I don’t wanna know.
