Former Fiji 7s player Amenoni Nasilasila convicted of one count of rape will be sentenced by the Lautoka High court on Wednesday.
Nasilasila was found guilty of one count of rape by Judge Justice Daniel Goundar who had overturned the assessors’ not guilty opinion during his judgment last month.
During his sentence hearing this morning, Nasilisila took the stand and apologized to the court for the offence and pleaded for mercy and leniency.
The state will rely on written submissions.
26-year-old Nasilasila raped a 24-year-old woman in Olosara, Sigatoka on December 22nd last year.
He has been remanded until Wednesday.
