A 24-year-old man was not just sentenced to five months in prison when he was convicted in a rape case in the Court in Elsinore on Thursday.
The city court also sentenced him to a ban on staying at pubs and restaurants after midnight, and then he is not allowed to stay in any of the nightlife zones designated by the police.
The verdict fell on Thursday, North Zealand Police inform, who says that the case is the first of its kind in the police district. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
It was on July 1 that a new law came into force, which means that people who are convicted of certain types of crime in the night life can be banned from moving in the night life.
The ruling means in part that the 24-year-old is not allowed to stay in bars, restaurants and other places where alcohol is served between midnight and 5 am.
In addition, he is not allowed to stay in any of the nightlife zones that the police designate and publish on his website. The 24-year-old was sentenced to the ban for a period of nine months.
The young man, who is from Nivå, was convicted in the case for beating and kicking several people at Stürups Plads in Elsinore. He also smashed a window on Stengade and had a small amount of hash for his own use.
Even though the crime took place in North Zealand, the ban applies throughout the country.
At present, the police have not introduced any nightlife zones in North Zealand, but the Copenhagen Police have introduced four zones.
They cover Gothersgade, Vestergade, Vesterbrogade and Kødbyen, all of which are considered to be some of Copenhagen’s most popular places to go in the city.
The 24-year-old man has two weeks to consider whether to appeal the verdict.
