Granduncle cops 13-years jail term for rape

June 6, 2018 12:44 am

A seventy-one-year-old man has been sentenced to thirteen-years for raping her granddaughter.

The incident happened on two separate occasions in August and October in 2015.

The Suva High Court heard the man who is the granduncle of the victim lured her to come to him by showing her a five dollar note in August.

He then raped the girl who was thirteen-years-old at that time near the pig pen.

The Court heard he committed the similar offence near the pig pen in October.

He is eligible for parole after serving nine-years in imprisonment.
