Man gets life sentence for defiling daughter

10 June 2014, 15:09 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A 33-year-old man who defiled his 14-year-old daughter in Nyeri has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

The  man committed the vice on diverse dates between May and October 2011.

In her judgment, Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma said that according to evidence, the convict was guilty of committing the offence.

The court heard that the minor dropped some drugs while playing with her colleagues in school, which were then forwarded to their Guidance and Counseling teacher.

After investigations, it was discovered that the child wanted to commit suicide because her father had been defiling her.

She revealed that after her parents separated in May 2011, the father told her that she would automatically take over all the responsibilities of her mother including conjugal ones.

The Magistrate noted that the child was afraid to disclose information to the children officer as she had lost trust in people.

In his mitigation, the convict prayed for a lenient sentence so as to take care of his kids.

The magistrate said the court could not release him to the public as it was evident that he was a threat to his own children, and deserved life imprisonment.
