Update: 3:13PM A 32-YEAR-OLD man has been jailed for 14 years and eight months after he was found guilty of raping his niece in January last year.

The man was charged with one count of rape and appeared before Lautoka High Court judge Justice Sudharshana De Silva on Wednesday.

Justice De Silva said the victim was three years old at the time of the incident and the perpetrator did not show any remorse.

The aggravating factors are a serious breach of trust and the victim was of a very young age, he said.

You let the victim relieve her experience in court, you took advantage of the victim's vulnerability and you have traumatised the life of the victim.

He will not be eligible for parole until he has served 13 years imprisonment and has 30 days to appeal.
