BRUSSELS — Ghent Court has sentenced a farmer to two year's jail, one of which was suspended, for the rape of a Polish woman.
The 45-year-old man, identified only as Luc D., initially brought two Polish women into the country, newspaper 'Het Gazet van Antwerpen' reported on Wednesday.
He was later charged with three offences; rape, incitement to sexual abuse of a youth and human smuggling, but was only convicted on the rape charge.
The man, of Deinze, brought two Polish women into Belgium after he divorced from his wife. One of the women accused the man of raping her soon after she arrived.
Due to the fact the farmer's underage son had a sexual relationship with the other woman, the public prosecutor charged D. with rape and the two other offences.
"Luc D. brought these women to Belgium to teach his son how to do it," the prosecutor said.
The prosecutor also said the defendant made the women work from early morning to late at night on his farm.
