A teenage boy from Forssa who scammed an online casino in Malta out of more than 100,000 euros, appeared in Häme District Court on Monday. He was sentenced after being convicted on charges of aggravated fraud as a minor.

The 18-year-old was slapped with suspended sentence of one year and eight months. He was 16 at the time when he allegedly took advantage of an IT glitch to register as a customer with a fake date of birth.
