Man imprisoned for 15 years for defilement

KNA       A middle-aged man was yesterday sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by a Homa Bay court for defiling his 12-year-old niece.

Denis Odiwuor committed the offence on 9th August 2016 at Sofia Estate in Homa Bay town according to the charge sheet.


The court heard that the minor   was living with the uncle together with his two daughters and Odiwuor used to pay her school fees.

The prosecution further told Homa Bay Principal Magistrate Ruth Maloba that on the material day, Odiwuor came home from work and went into the room where the minor slept and defiled her.

 After committing the heinous act, he threatened to kill the girl if she reported the matter to anybody. The minor however informed her aunt who took her to the hospital where medics confirmed the defilement.

The Principal Margistrate reminded the convict of the right to appeal against the sentence within 14 days.
