SOUTH AFRICA: 21-yr old child rapist sentenced to life in prison

A Pretoria High Court has sentenced a 21-year old rapist, Nichola Ninow to life in prison for defiling a seven year old girl.

Justice Mosopho of the Pretoria High Court also slammed the accused with a further 10 years for defeating the ends of justice and drug abuse.

The presiding judge held that the rapist had showed no remorse for his actions, therefore his name will be entered into the register of sexual offenders which means he cannot be allowed to work in any environment that involves children in the future.

Following the sentence of the child rapist, the National Prosecuting Authority praised both the investigating officer and the state prosecutor for working diligently on the case.
