Teenager convicted of defiling 2 girls

Headlines Teenager convicted of defiling 2 girls

court

A 17-YEAR-OLD boy of Chingola has been found guilty and convicted of defilement of one girl and indecent assault of two girls – all on the same day.
Chingola magistrate Shadreck Chanda convicted the juvenile after finding him guilty of one count of defilement and two counts of indecent assault.
Particulars in the first count are that on April 23, this year, in Chingola, the teenager allegedly had unlawful carnal knowledge of a girl aged six.
In the second count,  while in Chingola, the juvenile allegedly indecently assaulted an eight-year-old girl.
And in the third count, the juvenile is alleged to have unlawfully indecently assaulted a girl aged eight.
When the offender first appeared for mention, he denied all the charges and trial commenced.
During trial held in camera, the six-year-old girl told the court that the juvenile had sex with her after sending her friends to buy fritters.
“He sent my friends to go and buy fritters and asked me to remain behind. He then covered my face, undressed me, and had sex with me. When my friends came back, he sent me with my friends to buy ice-block, and he remained with my other friend,” she narrated.
All the victims’ testimonies were similar and they identified the juvenile as the one who sexually harassed them.
In defence, the offender said on the material date, he was molding bricks near the stream when he saw the three girls in the area.
He told the court that he sent the girls to buy fritters and they came back to inform him that there were no fritters and that after that, they went away.
The teenager’s mother was allowed to defend her son, but she said she was not around when the boy allegedly abused the girls, therefore could not know if her  son committed the crime.
“I find you guilty and convict you accordingly. From the evidence on record, it is not in dispute that you met the three girls and sent them to buy fritters. Age of a victim in cases like these is an essential ingredient, and by looking at the victims, no-one would dispute that they are less than 16 years.
“The medical report confirmed that the hymen was broken. The prosecution has proved its case beyond all reasonable doubts. I therefore find you guilty as charged.
Mr Chanda adjourned the matter to October 13 for a social welfare report.

  2. Disgusting! Thank God the children were brave enough to report the attack. Jail this pervert now, they get worse the older they get!

  3. I hope they hand the little monster real punishment, not a slap on the wrist. They mention the mother but not the daddy. That figures. He didn’t have a father to teach him manners and now he’s unfit to live in society.
