A 19 year old man has been sentenced to 2 years imprisonment for raping his 8 year old niece.

While delivering his sentence, High Court Judge, Justice Salesi Temo says that the accused was 16 years old when he committed the offence and because he was a juvenile back then, the tariff is 2 years in prison.

Justice Temo says now the accused is no longer a juvenile and now he will have to serve prison time.

The incident happened on the 5th of August in 2013 when the girl was returning from Church.
