Landlord jailed for raping his tenant

A landlord who raped his tenant was sentenced to four and a half years in prison by the Pudong District People's Court yesterday.

The 36-year-old convict, Wang Lian, is from Chongqing and came to Shanghai in 2006. He rented a three-bedroom apartment on Rongcheng Road and sublet the bedrooms to others.

In June, Zhang Jing, the victim, saw his "for rent" ad online and contacted Wang to rent one bedroom. After she moved in, Wang began to harass her with love messages and gifts but all was turned down.

On June 24 when other tenants were out, Wang sneaked into Zhang's room and raped her. Wang was caught that night after Zhang called the police. He pleaded guilty in the court yesterday.
