The Intermediate Court sentenced Joseph Serge Alain Ducray to 9 months in prison on Tuesday morning August 2.
The company director was found guilty of indecent assault on his 4 year old daughter. The case dates back to December 2011.
The judgment was pronounced by the magistrate Wendy Rangan. However, the prison sentence imposed on Joseph Serge Alain Ducray was suspended. The Court ordered a social inquiry on the defendant to determine whether he is fit to perform community service instead of serving 9 months in prison.
The case will be called again in the Intermediate Court on 11 August.
