A man of about 45 years has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for defiling a 13-year-old girl.
The Kenyan man identified as Odongo Ogendo Joseph was declared guilty by Homa Bay senior judge Simiyu Lester for sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl on 22nd July 2017 at Shauri Yako Estate located in Homa Bay.
The suspect also faced a different charge for touching the genitals of the young girl.
On addition, Odongo appealed for leniency and asked for forgiveness saying he has a responsibility for looking after his family.
After listening to witnesses that testified in the lawsuit, the senior magistrate however concluded by saying the defendant committed an evil act and deserves a disincentive punishment.
