Former central Victorian man jailed

A former central Victorian man who raped a 73 year old woman in her own bed has been sentenced.

The Bendigo Advertiser reports that Albert John Hammond will serve a maximum of six years and six months for the attack back in 2016 after he pleaded guilty at the County Court in Bendigo in August.

The 57 year old was serving a three year community corrections order at the time after attacking a younger relative of the victim in 2015.

He will be eligible for parole in four and a half years' time.
