A Swedish appeal court upheld a rape conviction, giving as one of its main reasons the belief that young women are unlikely voluntarily to have sex with much older men, AP reports from Stockholm.

'The court of appeal ridicules itself by saying . . . that it is unlikely that a 20-year-old girl would go to bed with a man in his 40s,' said the convicted man, Billy Butt, a former record producer. The court upheld Butt's conviction for raping nine women, all of whom were in their 20s and late teens.
