A 19 year old has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment for raping and sexually assaulting as 10 year old girl.

High Court Judge Justice Daniel Goundar said that despite the fact that the offender had pleaded guilty to the charges at the first opportunity, a prison sentence was inevitable.

He said the purpose of such a sentence was to denounce the conduct of the offender and deter him and others.

The convicted rapist will be eligible for parole after seven years.
