A 42-year-old woman accused of defiling a Class 8 pupil has been arrested.
The suspect was found with the 14-year-old boy at her home in Nyamaraga, Suna West Sub County on Saturday evening.
Area Assistant Chief Evance Nyarube said he got a report from irate residents who complained about her alleged relationship with the teenager.
According to him, the boy’s parents had repeatedly warned the two against having a relationship but their demands fell on deaf ears.
Mr. Nyarube said investigations established that the woman hinted that she intended to marry the teenager.
He reiterated that defilement is a crime stating that the suspect will face the law.
She is expected to appear before a Migori court on Monday.
“A person who commits an offense of defilement with a child between the age of 12 and 15 years is liable upon conviction to imprisonment for a term of not less than 20 years,” the Sexual Offenses Act reads.
