Nicholas Ninow has been sentenced to life behind bars for rape, five years for drug possession, and five more for defeting the ends of justice at the Gauteng North High Court.
During the sentencing process, the judge noted that the accused had been unable to prove to the court that he was genuinely remorseful. However, the court took into account the fact that Ninow had a child of his own and that there was a good chance that he could be rehabilitated. The judge said Ninow appeared to be a “broken person.”
The young man, who had also been sexually abused as a child, was charged for molesting a 7-year-old girl in a female toilet at the Dros restaurant in Silverton, Pretoria.
