A 50-year-old carpenter has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for rape and sexual assault charges against his three nephews.

The man appeared before Justice Salesi Temo at the High Court in Suva yesterday. The accused was charged with two counts of rape and three counts of sexual assault.

The offences took place between July and August 2014.

The court yesterday heard that the accused had travelled from Ba to Nakasi to renovate his brother-in-law’s house where the offence took place.

The court also heard that it was during the preparation of a wedding at the accused’s brother-in-law’s home when he raped three boys between the ages of eight to 11-years-old.

While delivering his sentence, Justice Temo said the accused had a series of breach of trust for committing the offence on his three nephews. The accused will be eligible for parole after eight years.
