A man who raped a five-year-old girl, has been jailed for 10 years and 10 months.

High Court judge, Justice Priyantha Fernando considered Isikeli Delaivuna’s early guilty plea when pronouncing the sentence.

But he said: “Our nation’s children should be protected and these sexual offenders must be deterred.”

Delaivuna, 46, on July 31 raped a 5-year-old girl under a blanket.

He will serve a minimum parole period of eight years and 10 months.
