A Sri Lankan student will spend at least 18 months behind bars for sexually assaulting a passenger while he was working as a taxi driver in Perth.

The suspect pleaded guilty to three charges of molesting the 34 year old woman after picking her up in Mount Hawthorn in July.

The District Court was told the woman was affected by alcohol and after falling asleep, awoke to find the 28 year old abusing her.

The suspect was sentenced to three years jail.

He will have to serve half that time before he can be released on parole.

He is then likely to be deported. (ABC News)

    Why only one and half years? He should have been sentenced to at least 20 years and the name must have been published too.

    I think the punishment is fair. If he misbehaves in jail or is not sorry for his crime he will serve the full 3 years of his sentence.

    Not at all, still being uncivilised is the culprit.

    This is the infamous Minister of (bad) PR, MARAVIN SILVA's Secretary's son! What a combination of fathers and sons that builds PR:( both locally and overseas!

    It's not because Sri Lankans always engage in this types of acts. They become news to Sri Lankans only when one of ours involved.
