Kampala High Court judge Alex Ajiji has sentenced a 27 year old man to 17 years in prison for defiling a 9 year old girl.
The convict David Kayondo was pinned by doctors, to have defiled the girl, who happened to be the daughter of his own sister, and infecting her with HIV/AIDs.
Kayondo, a resident of Nakulabye Hozana zone, in Rubaga division was convicted on his own guilty plea.
He asked court to be handed a lenient sentence since he didn’t waste court’s time by undergoing a full trial.
Court heard from prosecution that the convict had made it a routine to defile the girl whenever his sister was away at work.
State prosecution told court that Kayondo defiled the girl whose names are withheld, several times since May 2015, well aware that he was HIV positive.
The victim said that her uncle threatened to harm her if she reported him to authorities.
She however, out of pain, decided to reveal the abuse to one of the neighbors on June 25th 2015, who in turn informed the mother, leading to the arrest of Kayondo.
