RUPENI Baleitamavua is looking at doing jail time despite being acquitted of rape by the High Court in Suva yesterday.
A day earlier, assessors returned with a not guilty opinion and yesterday, Justice Prabaharan Kumararatnam said he agreed with the assessors.
Baleitamavua was also charged with a count of assault to which he pleaded guilty.
The State prosecution had informed the court that Baleitamavua was on a suspended sentence of nine months for a criminal trespass offence.
The court said in light of another offence that happened while the suspended term was still in place required the activation of the jail term.
State and defence counsels were told to file their sentencing submissions regarding the assault charge.
Baleitamavua will be sentenced today.
