THE Labasa Magistrates Court yesterday sentenced a 43-year-old man to two years behind bars for stealing.
Marika Tagicakibau appeared before magistrate Ropate Cabealawa on nine counts of theft. The court heard Tagicakibau stole $2270 from a sickly man he was looking after.
The incident took place in Savusavu two years ago.
In handing down sentence, Mr Cabealawa said Tagicakibau had breached the trust of the complainant.
He said the complainant trusted Tagicakibau because he had been looking after him for some time.
