A high school teacher will now spend 10 years in jail after court found him guilty of defiling a 15-year-old girl who approached him to get advice when she was almost giving up on life.
Giving the landmark ruling senior principal magistrate Charles Mwaniki said the prosecution proved its case beyond doubt.
Four witnesses testified in court before the judgement was made but the accused person denied committing the offence.
“I convict the suspect to 10 years in jail after considering his mitigations. I allow him 14 days to appeal ,” Mwaniki ruled.
“I order that the proceedings be granted to the defense at their won cost,” he added.
While testifying in court, the minor said that the teacher defiled her when she went for counseling session at his house.
The teacher committed the offence between July 15, 2013 and October 19, 2013 at Subira in Lang’ata, Nairobi county.
