A 27-year-old man in Entebbe has been sentenced to 15 years in jail after pleading guilty to aggravated defilement.

Simon Nkayivu was sentenced on Thursday by Justice Anthony Oyuko Ojok during the High Court Criminal session at Entebbe Chief Magistrate's Court. 

According to the court, Nkayivu, defiled the victim, a six-year-old girl on October 9th,  2019 in  Nsumbe village, Wakiso district.

The State Attorney Ramlah Damba told the court that Nkayivu sent the victim to buy him toothpaste from the shop and when she returned he forcefully dragged her into his house and defiled her.

According to Damba, the victim who was crying informed the shopkeeper of what had happened and Nkayivu was arrested.

Justice Ojok noted that at his age he should have protected the minor. According to Ojok Nkayivu deserved a 15-year jail sentence, but reduced the two and half years that Nkayivu spent on remand.
