The High Court in Labasa has sentenced a man to eight years in prison for raping a 23-year-old woman.

Rahul Ritesh Chand’s sentence by Justice Salesi Temo has a non-parole period of six years.

Justice Temo overruled the assessors’ opinion that the accused was not guilty and later convicted him as charged.

The court heard that the accused took advantage of a situation that occurred between the victim and her sister.

The victim was having an affairwith the sister’s husband. She has two children from the brother-in-law.

The sisters had an argument over the children and the man asked Chand, to look after his partner for the night to relieve some pressure.

That night Chand raped her after a kava session.

The victim later informed her sister who told her husband before the matter was reported to the Police.
