A former police officer, who indecently assaulted a 15-year-old girl, has been sentenced to two and a half years behind bars.
In sentencing the man today, Magistrate Shageeth Somaratne says the aggravating factor is that the victim is the niece of the accused and was staying with him and his family.
Magistrate Somaratne says the man brought disrepute to his family.
The incident happened in October, 2015 at their home.
He will serve a non- parole period of twenty months.
