High court judge Salesi Temo yesterday sentenced a 42-year-old man of Cakaudrove to 16 years in jail to warn rapists of harsher sentences for committing the offence.

The man was charged with one count of rape and one count of assault causing actual bodily harm.

The incident happened on October 10, 2015 between 8 to 11pm in a village.

Because of the totality principle of sentencing, Judge Temo sentenced the man to 16 years imprisonment with a non-parole period of 15 years.
