Man jailed for raping step-daughter

November 25, 2016 7:47 pm

A 35-year-old man has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for raping his step-daughter in 2013.

High Court Judge, Justice Thushara Rajasinghe, says sexually assaulting a young girl within her own family environment by a known family member is one of the most outrageous forms of crime.

Rajasinghe says such offenders must be dealt with severe and harsh punishment.

The incident happened when the accused and the victim were home alone as the other family members had gone to the City.

The man has been given a non-parole sentence of 7 years.
