14 Years For Raping Daughter

The High Court in Lautoka has sent a father to jail for breaching his daughter’s trust.

The Rakiraki father was sentenced to 14 years in jail.

The man was found guilty after a two day trial before Judge Justice Sudharshana De Silva.

The accused had initially faced one count of sexual assault and two counts of rape.

While delivering the sentence, Justice De Silva said the offense was a breach of trust between the father and daughter and the accused showed no remorse for his actions and no repentance.

The aggravating factors taken into account by Justice De Silva included the victim’s young age and that she was subjected to more than one sexual act.

The court heard that on January 20 last year, the accused sexually assaulted and raped his daughter on three different occasions in a jungle area near their house.

He may be eligible for parole after completing 12 years.
