Three sentenced in underage rape case

Three men were sentenced at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday in connection with multiple rapes of a 17-year-old girl. Livy Dy, 30, and Ou Soeun, 26, each earned 15 years in prison for raping the girl, while Kuch Phirom, 20, received 5 years for being an accomplice. “We decided to strongly punish these three people,” presiding Judge Suon Samnang said. All three were arrested last February at a rental house in Rong Chak village in Sen Sok district, following a complaint from the girl’s parents, district police officer Pen Thol said.
