A man has been jailed for 20 years after a Narok Court found him guilty of defiling and impregnating a 13-year-old girl.
Wilson Letuya Nkoiboni, 22, committed the offence between December 2013 and August 2014 contrary to section 8(1) of the sexual offences act No. 3 of 2006.
According to Citizen Digital, The court was told that the man defiled the girl at Olenkomei area Narok North; the victim testified in private.
On November 2, 2015, the prosecution applied for and was granted DNA results of the child, the victim as well as the accused.
However, the results from Kipngetich Bernard at the Government Chemist Department based in Nairobi exonerated the accused as the biological father of the child.
On mitigation, the accused pleaded with the court to have leniency on the sentence saying he was a businessman and that he had allegedly slept once with the minor but regretted his actions.
While reading the judgment on Thursday, Narok Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma said the accused had committed a serious offence and deserved to serve the whole sentence in prison.
He was given two weeks to appeal the matter but will remain in custody.
