A 52-year-old stepfather was sentenced to 10 years and five months in jail for raping and impregnating his 16-year-old mentally challenged stepdaughter.

The accused, charged with one count of rape, appeared before Judge Achala Wengappuli in the High Court in Labasa yesterday.

The offence was committed at Taveuni Island between January 1 and January 31, 2014.

There is also an ongoing case in the High Court for the victim’s 65-year-old biological father for alleged incest in 2011.

That case had been adjourned for mention to next Monday.
