Mr Juna had pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of rape, and begged the court for leniency.

Mr Mohammed said that the punishment would serve as a deterrent to others who might want to engage in similar acts.

Mr Ocho said that during medical investigation, some bruises were found on the private part of the victim.
