Sexual assault conviction

Tongatapu man sentenced for sexually assaulting woman as she slept next to her husband

Tongamoa Kakau, 32, served only six months of his three-year sentence after Judge Langi suspended two years for three years following his release.

As Kakau has no relevant or recent criminal conviction since he was convicted in 2004 for the offence of assault, Judge Langi deducted six months, leaving a total sentence of two years and six months.

Kaniva news reports Kakau was found guilty of one count of serious indecent assault contrary to section 124 (1) and (3) of the Criminal Offences Act.
