The man claimed not to remember what had happened but DNA testing proved that he had had sexual intercourse with his sister, visir.is reports.

The man was also convicted of breaking-and-entering and theft from stores. He was charged for raping another woman but it couldn’t be proven that the intercourse had happened against her will.

The convict must pay his sister more than ISK 1 million (USD 7,800, EUR 5,700) in compensation in addition to serving three years in prison. He was also permanently deprived of his driving license.
