Wayne Robert Jarden
Wayne Robert Jarden has begun a 15-year jail term for two Christchurch home-invasion rapes.
He and elder brother Kevin Moana Jarden himself a notorious sex offender are now both serving long jail terms, preventive detention in Kevin Jarden's case..
Wayne Jarden, 51, was caught by DNA evidence long after the offences in 1988 and 1996. One of his victims has endured 20 years of trauma as a result of the attack, and the other was a 90-year-old woman who died exactly three years later.
Christchurch District Court Judge Brian Callaghan imposed the jail terms at Jarden's sentencing yesterday after he pleaded guilty to charges of burglary, burglary with a weapon, and two rapes.
In the first attack, he broke into a house at night and tied a woman to a table with strips of cloth he had cut from a duvet on the washing line before raping her.
In the second attack, he pushed his way into the elderly woman's house and overpowered her before raping her while she pleaded for him to leave her alone.
