Ex-tennis star Bob Hewitt jailed for rape
May 18, Cape Town: Former Grand Slam tennis star Bob Hewitt sentenced to jail for six years by a South African court for raping underage girls.
Hewitt, 75, was found guilty of two counts of rape and one of sexual assault at his trial in Johannesburg in March.
Speaking at the sentencing hearing, his wife begged the court to show mercy to her husband.
The attacks took place in the 1980s and 1990s when the Australian-born player was working as a coach in South Africa.
