Man facing defilement to appear in court today


A man facing one count of defilement will appear again in court today for prosecution to confirm the allocation of prosecutor.

Prosecutor looking after the case told court yesterday that the file will be re-allocated as he will be posted out to the provinces.

This is the case of a man alleged to have had sex with an underage girl on December 25, 2008.

He was earlier charged with three counts of defilement, but after prosecution looked through the charges the other two counts were withdrawn.

Police alleged that the accused forced the victim into having sex. The victim at first refused but then later agreed as the accused insisted.

Police said since December 25, 2008 the victim and accused both continued with their sexual activity until the victim got pregnant on the month of March 2009.

Police said the accused during the sexual acts did not ask for the victim’s age but enjoyed himself; the case was then reported to the police in which he was arrested and charged to appear before the court.
