Couple picked up women,

then raped them

A New Zealand couple who offered women lifts home before raping them have been jailed.

At the High Court in Hamilton today, Jason Lloyd Jones, 38, was sentenced to 9½ years’ jail after earlier being found guilty of two charges of rape.

His partner Maureen Samantha Iti, 33, was jailed for four years and eight months after being found guilty of one count of rape.

The court heard the couple, from Tamahere, nine kilometres south-east of Hamilton, offered two women rides home, on separate occasions, before giving them alcohol and cannabis.

Jones later raped both women – in one case Iti held one of the victims while this occurred.

The two victims were approached in or near Hamilton strip club Firecats.

The couple have been in a relationship for almost 20 years and have four teenage children.

The prosecution is calling for a retrial on a third charge of rape for which the couple were found not guilty at trial.
