Court to sentence teenager for rape

A 19-YEAR-old man who pleaded guilty to three counts of rape will be sentenced by the High Court in Suva later today.

The man had appeared before judge Justice Thushara Rajasinghe yesterday.

Justice Rajasinghe deferred the case because the sentencing for the accused was not ready.

It is alleged that on December 9 in 2017, the accused had raped an 11-year-old boy at Wainibuka in Tailevu.

He will be sentenced at 11.30am.
