A widow has been given a suspended jail term for defilement.

The victim is a 15-year-old student.

The woman, who is a bartender at a prominent pub at Labasa, pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to a year in jail.

Magistrate Cama Tuberi then suspended the jail term for two years at the Labasa Magistrates Court.

However, any breach of this suspended term will result in a 12-month jail term.

The widow, who moved from Suva after her husband died, is alleged to have defiled the student at Siberia Branch Road last year.
