A Northern Territory man has been found guilty of raping a 26-year-old teacher in a remote community south of Katherine in 2016.
He was sentenced to eight years' jail.
Less than 24 hours later, a second Northern Territory man was convicted of indecent assault.
A 61-year-old female principal had entered a school building, leaving it unlocked behind her.
The man had followed the principal into the building.
He stood naked in front of the principal, holding a machete, and behaved indecently.
This second NT man was sentenced to one year and 9 months in jail, suspended immediately, following six months time served.
The NT Department of Education has refused to confirm if Northern Territory teachers who are working in remote communities are warned not to go outside alone.
