Policeman handed jail term for rape
ROME - An Italian Carabinieri police officer was sentenced to four years and eight months' imprisonment on Thursday for the rape of two US students in Florence last year. Officer Marco Camuffo was one of two officers who picked up two university exchange students outside a nightclub and gave them a lift home in September 2017. The women later reported they were sexually assaulted inside their flat. Camuffo had been sentenced in a fasttrack trial, a form of trial in Italy that allows for more lenient sentencing, the ANSA news agency reported. The prosecution had asked for a jail term of five years and eight months, ANSA added.
