A man has been imprisoned for 20 years by a court in Rongo for defiling a junior who also happens to be his relative.
The prosecutor explained the court how Juma Musa defiled his 13 year old sister-in-law in an incident that happened on August 1,2019 in Awendo Migori county.
Rongo Law Court Resident Magistrate Raymond Langat found Musa guilty under Section 215 of the Sexual Offenses Act.
“Medical evidence, circumstantial evidence and the oral confirmations from seven witnesses before court cannot be challenged by the convict hence the court has been convinced beyond reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty,” the magistrate ruled.
The magistrate further said the sentence should serve as a lesson to anyone else with the same intentions of defiling a minor.
The convicted man has been granted 14 days to appeal the judgement.
