Man convicted of raping grandchild

A GRANDFATHER who had raped his eight-year-old granddaughter has been remanded in custody awaiting sentence.

The elderly man was charged with three counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

High court judge Justice Vincent Perera acquitted him of the third count of rape saying he did not find any evidence to convict him on that count.

However, he was found guilty and convicted of two counts of rape and one of sexual assault.

The man had committed the offence on February 11 last year.

He will be sentenced tomorrow.
