David William Alden
He has already served four years behind bars and now a former Palmerston North cleaner has had another 12 years added to his time in prison – for raping and violating two women.
At the High Court at Palmerston North yesterday, David William Alden, 42, was sentenced to 16 years' jail by Justice Forrest Miller on five rape and four sexual assault charges.
A jury found him guilty on eight charges, while Alden admitted one indecent assault count before he went on trial.
But he's already been behind bars for four years, having been handed down a five-year sentence in 2007 for similar offences against two teenage girls. Alden also has previous convictions for offending against two other female victims.
Because Alden is in prison, Justice Miller ruled the latest 16-year sentence must be imposed from 2007, meaning Alden's scheduled release date is 2023.
