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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
