NKHATA BAY-(MaraviPost)- The Nkhata Bay First Grade Magistrate Court on Friday, sentenced a twenty five-year old man to 13 years imprisonment with hard labor, for being found guilty of defiling a 14-year old girl.

Nkhata Bay Police station spokesperson Ignatius Esau identified the convict as Jacob Sichali, who committed the crime on the night of March 18, this year.

According to Esau, the Court heard that the convict summoned the girl to his house to collect undisclosed items sent by her father.

While the girl was inside house, Sichali defiled the victim. She reported the ordeal to her parents, who immediately alerted the police.

“After appearing in the Court, the convict pleaded not guilty to the charges, which prompted the State to parade three witnesses against Sichala.

Consequently, the Court slapped him with the 13 years in jail with hard labor,” said Esau.

The convict Sichali hails from Ipenza in the northern district of Chitipa.
