A 62-year-old farmer has been sentenced to nine years in jail for indecently assaulting and raping a woman in Lautoka four years ago.

The incident happened on 27th and 28th March, 2013 when the man went to the complainant’s house to massage her mother who was suffering from arthritis.

Lautoka High Court Judge Justice Aruna Aluthge said that the man knew that the complainant was separated from her husband and he was aware that she was in need of a medical therapy therefore the man exploited her vulnerability.

The man can apply for parole after seven years.
