Serial offender Eng Sokha was sentenced in a Kandal court on January 2 to a further
eight years in prison and ordered to pay $1,000 compensation for the multiple rape
of a nine-year-old girl. Sokha, 19, committed the offense in 1998. He was sentenced
to 12 years in jail last July for similar offenses. That followed an outcry in early
2001 when he was given a light sentence after the judge ruled that a rape he was
accused of committing "was not deep".
