Longer jail Sentence For Rape of 84-year old

The Court of Criminal Appeal has increased the jail sentence of a man who brutally raped an 84-year-old Riverland woman.
The court yesterday ruled 2-1 the sentence imposed on 33-year-old John Siozios fell "so far short of an adequate penalty" it should be increased immediately.
The eight-year sentence was increased to 11 years, and the court imposed a 6 year non-parole period.
In the majority judgment, Justice John Perry said Siozios had deliberately targeted the victim's unit from among a block of aged-care flats with the intention of raping her.
The assault, in August 2002, was "accompanied by violence throughout" and "has had lasting effects" on the victim's peace of mind. Justice Perry said a 13-year term was appropriate, reducing it by two years for Siozios' guilty plea.
Justice Perry's ruling was supported by Chief Justice John Doyle.
Justice Richard White, dissenting, agreed the original sentencing judge had made several "errors of fact".
But he said the sentence, while lenient, did not involve "an erosion of sentencing standards".
