Child sex offender

Paul Pisa today went before the Supreme Court with his appeal against conviction.

He was convicted by the Waigani National Court on 16 March 2017 following a trial and was sentenced to 15 years in prison on 20 April 2017.

The victim in the case was 15 years at the time of the incident and bore a child on June 22, 2014, as a result. She was sexually assaulted between Sept 1 and Sept 18, 2013, at Redhill at Gerehu.

He argued the appeal before the full court on seven main grounds.
