Peter Andrew Davis was yesterday sentenced to 11 years’ and seven months hard labour for a 2006 rape.
Port of Spain judge Gillian Lucky said she was concerned that young boys and girls were seen as preys, and sent a message to rapists that they will feel the full brunt of the law for their acts.
Davis, 36, was convicted of rape by a jury on May 8.
“This court cannot turn a blind eye to the prevalence and seriousness of this type of offence,” Lucky said.
The State was represented by prosecutor Gisele Heller-Ferguson.
