A long drop off a short rope, Ctd

The Crown appealed the sentences and it has been increased, but it is still not long enough for these creeps. Wobbly stools and hemp rope were invented for these two.

A predatory Waikato couple jailed for luring young women into their van and raping them have had their sentences increased by the Court of Appeal.

Jason Lloyd Jones, 38, and his partner of two decades, Samantha Maureen Iti, 33, were found guilty after trial in the High Court at Hamilton last year. The jury failed to reach a verdict on a third rape charge against the pair and an indecent exposure count against Jones.

A dairy farm manager, Jones has now had his nine and a half years behind bars on two counts of rape quashed and replaced with a new sentence of 13 years with a minimum non-parole period of six years.

Iti’s original four years and eight months on one rape charge have been increased by a year.

In a decision released today, the Appeal Court judges agreed with the Crown that the initial jail terms were manifestly inadequate.

Jones was convicted of raping two young women in the space of six weeks in late 2009 and early 2010.

On the later count, Iti – who was also present during the first offence – was found guilty of being party to rape.
