Teenage boy charged for defiling 14-year-old girlfriend
A 17-year-old form three student has been charged at the Makadara Law Courts for defiling a 14-year-old girl who sneaked in for a sleep over in Korogocho slums, Nairobi.
Both teenagers live with their parents in the same neighbourhoods.
The boy reportedly committed the offence on June 20, 2020 in a house where he sleeps with his young brother.
The two teenagers had reportedly met hours before to plan their night escapade.
The girl’s brother discovered she was missing from their house at 3am and informed their parents.
The two were later caught in bed at around 5am.
The boy’s mother took him to Kariobangi Police Station and attempted to engage the girl’s family in reconciliation talks.
The accused denied the charges before the Makadara Law Courts and was freed on bond. Hearing of the case starts on September 9, 2020.
A fortnight ago, the Makadara Law Courts acquitted a 17-year-old boy who was charged with defiling his 15-year-old girl.
The magistrate who presided over the case said both are children in need of care and protection by their parents and recommended counselling for both.
