Man sentenced to four years for child rapes

Updated Wed Mar 5, 2008 11:10am AEDT

A 23-year-old northern Tasmanian man has been sentenced to nearly four-and-a-half years imprisonment after pleading guilty to raping an 11-year-old girl.

Brett James Hannan from Low Head admitted two counts of rape.

In 2004, Hannan twice raped the 11-year-old girl while he and his wife were baby-sitting the girl and her little sister.

Hannan and his wife had repeatedly asked the girl to have sex, before Hannan’s wife undressed the girl.

Hannan’s wife remained on the bed while her husband raped the girl, and for her part in the crime received a sentence of two-and-a-half years June.

In the Launceston Criminal Court this morning, Hannan was sentenced to four years and three months in jail with a 27-month non-parole period.

His name will be recorded on the sex offenders register.
