Siuta Suwaki has pleaded guilty to charges of absconding bail and sexual assault.

The accused is a 21 year old school gardener. He appeared before Mag­istrate Seinileba Levaci at the La­basa Magistrates Court yesterday.

He was initially released on bail, but failed to appear in court on Feb­ruary 5. During the mitigation he informed the court that he looks af­ter his aunt and grandmother and that they depended on his wages. He asked the court to forgive him and promised not to offend again.

The accused was remanded and he will be sentenced on March 6.
