Judge Finds Mother Rapist Guilty

 

In a first for Fiji, a 45-year-old woman was convicted in the Suva High Court yesterday after she was found guilty of raping her daughter.

The incidents happened in Nasinu between January 1, 2016 and July 5, 2016 when the victim was in Year Eight.

Judge Justice Salesi Temo is expected to deliver the sentence of the mother of four today at 11:30am.

The assessors deliberated for about 25 minutes and came out with a mixed opinion.

The first and third assessor found the woman guilty on a count of rape while the second assessor found her not guilty.

On the second count of sexual assault, all three assessors found the woman guilty as charged.

While convicting the woman, Justice Temo said that he found the victim to be a credible witness.

Last member of ‘Evil 8’ pedophile ring Alfred Impicciatore found guilty

The last member of the so-called “Evil 8” pedophile ring to face court has been found guilty after a brief judge-alone trial in Perth of raping a 13-year-old girl.

Alfred John Impicciatore, 47, sexually penetrated the girl four times in March 2015 as her father watched and joined in the abuse.

Impicciatore had struck up an online friendship with the father and it was his first visit to their Perth house.

He confessed to police about two months after the crimes, but his case was repeatedly adjourned after he failed to show up in court and changed lawyers several times.

Impicciatore was repeatedly told by magistrates the matter could not drag out any longer and he must enter a plea, but only did so in November last year.

There was also outrage that he twice secured bail.

Alfred Impicciatore was today convicted following a judge-only trial.

He was arrested after he refused to go to

OAKLAND— A jury found a convicted rapist guilty Monday of kidnapping, with intent to commit a sex crime, a Cal student who thought he was her Uber driver.

During his animated testimony, he blamed the victim for coming on to him, offering him oral sex and smoking meth in his van when he just wanted her to be safe and
