    A Tungua man has been jailed for having sex with a girl under the age of 12.

    Sione Faka’osifono Fainga’anuku, 67, was sentenced to three and nine months in prison after pleading guilty to the crime, according to Tonga’s Acting Attorney General, ‘Aminiasi Kefu.

    Kefu was commenting on Kaniva Tonga website correcting a mistake we made in our previous report of this case.

    We reported earlier this week that Fainga’anuku pleaded not guilty but this was incorrect. In fact he pleaded guilty, according to Kefu.
