A presenter of a leading radio station in Nyanza is facing a possible imprisonment of up to 14 years if found guilty for defiling a 14 year old minor. A Kisumu law court has today issued a ten day break period before ruling on the case.

The presenter, who was earlier released on a bond of sh. 100,000, was accused that late last year while at an estate within Kisumu county, intentionally and unlawfully, assaulted a 14yr old academy student sexually, contrary to section 317 of the sexual abuse act of a minor according to the penal code of 2006.

However appearing as a prosecution witness this afternoon, a clinical officer from a Kisumu hospital who claimed to have handled more than ten rape cases could not clearly ascertain to the court whether or not the alleged victim was indeed raped according to his medical examination.

The presenter who earlier pleaded not guilty to the charges is however forced to wait until Thursday next week to know his fate.
