Sydney, August 12 (ANI): A Brazilian girl has been sentenced to jail in Abu Dhabi for having "consensual sex" with a Pakistani school bus driver, claim local newspapers.
The 14-year-old girl has been sentenced to six months in prison followed by deportation.
The girl was sentenced after prosecutors charged that she had "consensual sex" and had arranged the meeting with the Pakistani man, citing what they described as "erotic" text messages, the reports said.
"A 14-year-old girl who initially claimed she was raped ... was yesterday (Tuesday) sentenced to six months in prison followed by deportation," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Gulf News as stating.
The girl reportedly retracted the rape accusation during a court hearing in late July, The National newspaper said.
Gulf News also reported that the man, who it said was a 25-year-old school bus driver from Pakistan, was sentenced to a year in prison and will also be deported. The National said the man was 28.
The girl's lawyers had requested the Pakistani man be accused of statutory rape, according to The National. (ANI)
