A former transportation official in southern China has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for rape and graft, a newspaper reported yesterday.

Huang Ping, former head of Humen Traffic Bureau in Guangdong Province, embezzled 980,000 yuan (US$156,898), took bribes up to 2.15 million yuan and illegally appropriated national assets involving 410,000 yuan, the Dongguan No. 1 People's Court heard recently, New Express reported. Signs of corruption came to light after police started investigating the rape, the paper said.

Huang raped a female subordinate between March 2010 and April 2011. The woman's husband found she was in her seventh month of pregnancy, though the couple had been childless for seven years. She confessed that she had been raped and the husband called police, the newspaper reported.

Eight other transportation officials were also implicated in the graft investigation, including the former transportation chief in Dalingshan and two deputy directors in Huangjiang and Xiegang.

They also were sentenced, but the report didn't provide any details. The nine went to court in October, but the court had not announced the verdicts until this week.
