12 Months For Defilement

A 20-year old man has been sentenced by the Labasa High Court to 12 months imprisonment for defilement.

Jese Kalounivalu was sentenced for defiling the 14-year old girl on May 2013.

Justice Daniel Goundar said that the courts had a duty to protect young girls from any form of sexual exploitation.

“Consent is not a defence to a charge of defilement,” he said.
