A 42-year-old man who is al­leged to have raped a sev­en-year-old girl appeared before Justice Riyaaz Hamza in the High Court in Labasa yester­day.

The accused is not related to the complainant.

The accused, who is charged with three counts of sexual as­sault is alleged to have commit­ted the offence on January 8, this year in Savusavu.

The accused was presented by Legal Aid lawyer Vilisoni Tui­colo.

In court Mr Tuicolo said the ac­cused was a first time offender, he was remorseful and entered an early guilty plea.

Justice Hamza said the accused was sick and should be given proper medical care and if need arises to be taken to the hospital.

He will be sentenced tomorrow.
