Teen jailed for rape of young girl

A teenager who claimed he was forced at gunpoint to take part of a vicious rape and assault on a 14-year-old Vietnamese girl has been jailed for 16 years. David Mamea, 18, was jailed in the High Court in Auckland today after a jury found him guilty last month of the rape and attempted murder of the girl early on New Year's Day, 2004. Mamea, 16 at the time of the attack, was found not guilty of being a party to rape. He had earlier admitted a charge of aggravated burglary. On the rape charge he was jailed for 16 years with a 10-year, non-parole term. On the attempted murder charge he was jailed for 10 years and on the aggravated burglary charge he was jailed for seven years. All terms were to be served concurrently.
