Ex-cop jailed for rape

Update: 5:16PM A FORMER police officer was sentenced by the High Court in Lautoka to eight years imprisonment for raping a woman in 2012.

While sentencing the father of two last week, Justice Paul
Madigan said a father of two very young children at the time should not have
been out drinking 3am in the morning.

“His family circumstances are not mitigatory value,” Justice
Madigan said.

However he said the accused has a clear record and had spent
three months in custody.

The 40-year-old will serve seven years in prison before he
is eligible for parole.
