A man will only spend three months in prison after raping the eight-year-old daughter of a family friend.

Rogelio Acosta Ruiz, originally from the Philippines, entered the girls' home in Mackay, Queensland, while she was home alone.

The married pedophile then performed a sexual act on the girl and told her to think of it as a lollipop & # 39 ;.

Ruiz pleaded guilty to three indictments, including rape, indecent treatment of a child under the age of 12 and acquiring a child under the age of 12 to commit an indecent act.

He was sentenced to three years on Wednesday with a 12-month suspension at the Mackay District Court in Queensland.

The 35-year-old has been in custody for nine months, so only three months to go until he is able to walk the streets.

Ruiz committed the crime in 2017, but was only reported earlier this year, Daily mercury reported.

Defense lawyer Matthew Heelan called his client a & # 39; role model & # 39; because he was an inspiration to people in the Philippines.

Ruiz moved to Australia for a better life before becoming a citizen in 2014.

& # 39; He has become a bit of a role model for the younger people who know his story in the Philippines, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; There is much to lose for him. & # 39;

The court heard that Ruiz knew the parents of the little girl he raped and had found her alone in their house.

He touched the girl inappropriately and let her touch him, although the girl at least once & # 39; no & # 39; had said.

Ruiz told the girl not to mention what he later described to the police as a & # 39; soft warning & # 39 ;.

The little girl washed her mouth in the sink after leaving her home.

Judge Suzanne Sheridan called the offense opportunistic and considered his lack of criminal history.

Ruiz had also been open to the police after the little girl's father heard his daughter talk about the attack on friends and the incident was reported.

He denied getting excited and gave the police more information about the incident that allowed them to file a complaint against him.
