A man has been jailed seven  years, two months and 23 days for raping his 13-year-old daughter in 2014.

Suva High Court judge Justice Vincent Perera said: “As a father you took advantage of the vulnerability of the victim and breached the trust she had in you.”

The incident occurred on October 11, 2014 in Nausori.

He was charged with a count of rape and sexual assault.

Justice Perera said that there was an age gap of 25 years between the father and daughter and he also took into account that the accused had pleaded guilty.

The man received a non-parole period of six years, two months and 28 days.
