A 42 year old KwaZulu Natal man has been sentenced to 10 years behind bars for romancing an under aged girl.
Police spokesperson Lieutenant Nqobile Gwala said the man was sentenced on Wednesday at the Esikhaleni Regional Court.
“It is alleged on April 26 2015, at Esikhaleni, a 15-year-old girl was said to be dating the accused and went to visit him. The mother of the victim noticed that her daughter never came… home for two days and when she came back, the victim reported that she was with her boyfriend.
“The mother took the victim to the police station to report the case as her daughter was still young. A case of statutory rape was opened at Esikhaleni SAPS and transferred to Empangeni Family Violence, Child Protection, and Sexual Offences Unit for further investigation,” Gwala said.
Bravo to the mother of this young lost soul, talking about a 42 year old is a boyfriend. Boyhood ends in high school.
