Man sentenced to 20 years in prison for defiling 13 year old girl


In a ruling that seeks to serve as an example to those engaging in sexual assaults on infants and teenagers, a man from Shauri Yako estate in Homa Bay county has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after the court found him guilty of defiling a 13 year old girl.

Joseph Odongo Ogendo pleaded guilty before Homa Bay senior resident magistrate Lester Simiyu for the act he committed on July 22, 2017.

His attempt to plead to be pardoned over claims that he had a family to take care of went in vain with the court concluding that he deserves to face the full wrath of the law.

Joseph Odongo has been given 14 days to appeal the ruling.
