A22-year- old plum­ber of Lautoka has been sen­tenced to two years in jail by the High Court in Lautoka for in­de­cent as­sault. Nav­i­ta­lai Toro, who was charged with one count of a sex­ual of­fence, ap­peared be­fore Jus­tice Aruna Aluthge last Fri­day. The court heard that between May 31 and June 1, 2012 the ac­cused un­law­fully and in­de­cently as­saulted the 15-year-old girl who was in Year Nine then.

While de­liv­er­ing Toro’s sen­tence, Jus­tice Aluthge told the ac­cused that the vic­tim had been emo­tion­ally dis­turbed af­ter he com­mit­ted the of­fence and the ac­cused had also ex­ploited her vul­ner­a­bil­ity.

Toro will be eli­gi­ble for pa­role af­ter one year in pri­son.
