A 17-year-old teenage boy has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison after admitting to the repeated sexual abuse of his then 12-year-old half-sister.

At the trial in Krems, the court heard that the incest was discovered when his mother found a written contract between the boy and his half-sister, that in return for sexual favours, the girl was allowed to play with some of his toys.

The teen, from the Waldviertel region of Lower Austria, was sentenced to 2.5 years conditional detention, of which five months must be served in prison.
