The appellant was found guilty in the High Court at Christchurch on four counts involving sexual offending against a female complainant aged ten, namely sexual violation by unlawful sexual connection, indecent assault (2) and inducing an indecent act. The first three counts were representative charges. On 22 November 2001 the appellant was sentenced to concurrent terms of three and a half years imprisonment on each count.
The appellant was staying with the female complainant’s mother, to whom he is related, at the time of the offending in January 2001. The appellant slept in the room shared by the complainant and her younger brother. Over a period of one to two weeks the appellant repeatedly indecently assaulted the complainant by kissing her and licking her breasts. On one occasion he induced her to do an indecent act by making her touch his penis. He also sexually violated her on several occasions by digitally penetrating her vagina. The appellant promised the complainant $5 a week if she kept quiet about the offending.
