The Face of a Rapist

The Turangi Rapist can now be named ahead of sentencing today after his name suppression expired:

The Turangi teenager who admitting raping a five-year-old girl as she slept in a caravan can now be named.

Name suppression lapsed for 16-year-old Raurangi Mark Marino ahead of his sentencing today.

Last month he admitted the charges of burglary and sexual violation by rape, as well as a third charge of aggravated wounding that was amended to causing grievous bodily harm.

He will be sentenced in Rotorua District Court today.

This is a photo of him from his Facebook page, What Up Naaw….is prison.

UPDATE: He has now been sentenced to 10 years in the pokie.
