Canberra Man Jailed Over Sex With Teen

1

A Canberra man who had sex with a 14 year old girl when he was 40 has been sentenced to two years jail.

The now 58-year-old has faced the ACT Supreme Court for sentencing, after the jury rejected his claims he thought the girl was 16 at the time.

He's been sentenced to a total of two years jail, but will be eligible for parole in 12 months.

Justice David Mossop said he showed leniency in sentencing the man, due to his difficult past.
