An Indonesian court has sentenced five janitors to up to eight years in prison over the rape of a kindergartner at an international school in Indonesia.

The custodians contracted to work at the Jakarta International School were arrested in April following reports from parents of a 6-year-old boy who claimed to have been sodomized. A sixth suspect committed suicide while in custody.

Four of the male defendants were sentenced Monday to eight years, while the only woman in the case received seven years.

All the defendants were also fined to pay $8,000 respectively or serve three more months in jail.

The school is attended by children of foreign diplomats, ex-patriots and Indonesia's elite. It has 2,400 students aged 3 to 18 from about 60 countries.
