A man who did horrible things to three little girls inside a church, is being made to pay maximally for his crime.
The man identified as Harrison Kinyua, has been sentenced to spend 100 years in prison.
Kinyua, a 20-year-old man from Kangaru village in Embu county, Kenya was sentenced to 100 years in prison for defiling three minors inside a church.
According to Tuko, Harrison Kinyua, is said to have defiled the girls aged between 10 and 13 years on December 10, 2015.
He pursued the girls who were returning seats to the church which had been borrowed for a funeral at a nearby home.
He then closed the gate and locked the church doors then ordered the to lie down before defiling them.
The Embu court heard that the accused only defiled two girls, dismissing one of the girls who didn’t show puberty signs.
He then went ahead to give each of them Ksh 20 to buy chips after the act.
The parents, however, discovered the incident and took them to Embu Level Five Hospital for examination.
“Their clothes were dirty especially on the back side. There was tenderness in their private parts and a whitish discharge. Two of them had been defiled before,” the doctor told the court.
Kinyua denied the charges claiming the girls’ families had ill motives, but the magistrate said all evidence proved his guilt.
Embu Senior Resident Magistrate Vincent Nyakundi sentenced Kinyua to 100 years in prison saying the offense was serious and should be served to deter others.
