Court sentences man to life after he was found guilty of defiling stepdaughter

Acourt in Eldoret has sentenced a 33-year-old man to life in prison after he was found guilty of defiling his underage step-daughter two years ago.

BOO, a casual labourer, is said to have defiled the 10-year-old girl on his matrimonial bed on November 16, 2019, at Chebarus village in Ainabkoi Sub County within Uasin Gishu.
It was alleged that the accused defiled the minor after chasing her mother from their house following a domestic squabble.

The incident was discovered by teachers who noticed the minor was in deep pain
The suspect was arrested by police officers from Kapsoya police station. The accused was also charged with an alternative charge of having indecent acts with the minor.

In his mitigation, he told the court that the minor’s mother framed him due to their frosty relationship. A medical report which was presented in court confirmed that the minor was defiled.

“Evidence produced in this court from the prosecution has clearly confirmed that the minor was defiled by a person well known to her, and she has identified you as her defiler. This court has sentenced you to a life sentence in prison,” ruled the magistrate.
