A local court today convicted three persons, including a minor, in a rape case involving a nine-year-old girl.
The convicts are Hallo Majra residents Dalip Kumar, Ashok Kumar and a juvenile.
The victim’s brother, who was the complainant in the case, stated that his sister had left for school in the morning on February 8, this year. However, she did not return home.
Later in the evening, one of the victim’s classmates told the family that the victim had told her that she was going to the Mansa Devi Temple.
The victim returned home the next day and revealed that she was kidnapped and raped by the accused.
The accused kept her in a house where she was drugged. Later, the two accused were arrested while the juvenile surrendered in the court.
A 21-YEAR-OLD man from Shurugwi has been sentenced to 17 years for raping a teenage mother.
Makiwa Chivika of Gombingo Village in Shurugwi had pleaded guilty to rape when he appeared before Regional Magistrate Mr Morgan Nemadire. Mr Nemadire said Chivika exhibited an unthinkable act of cruelty by raping the complainant as the baby clung precariously on the back of the mother.
“You took advantage of this defenceless mother after she asked for directions to the clinic where she wanted to take her baby for routine check-ups. You failed to just give directions to a desperate mother who could not recognise the way to the clinic and chose to rape her in the presence of her baby. For this offence you are sentenced to 17 years in prison,” he said.
The agreed facts are that on December 14, the complainant left home on her way to Gundura Clinic for a routine baby check-up. While on the way, she saw Chivika who was herding cattle and asked him for directions.
The court heard that suddenly Chivika started fondling her before he attempted to trip her. The court heard that Chivika then threatened to kill the complainant’s child if she continued to wrestle him. He later raped her once before she fled from the scene. Mr Kelvin Guveya appeared for the State.
State College, Centre County - For most, the Schlow Centre Region Library in State College is a safe place to learn, but police said Dylan Reeves, 19, used it to engage in sexual acts with a minor.
According to court documents, police received four separate reports from the Centre County Office of Children and Youth Services, which detailed a relationship he formed with a minor nearly four years younger than him.
Police said they found on Reeve's cell phone, nude photos exploiting the child.
Ultimately, officials said video and audio recordings at the Schlow Library show Reeves taking the juvenile into a bathroom on Dec. 12th where they had sex.
And reeves went on to slap and burn a cigarette into the juvenile's arm.
Police believe there were at least 3 other sexual incidents like this on other occasions.
In response to these disturbing details, spokesperson provided WTAJ with a response to the investigation:
"We take safety seriously at Schlow and have cooperated fully with the police in their investigation. We have cameras, radios, police walk-throughs, and regular restroom inspections. We get between 500 and 1,000 visitors a day and have implemented security measures and make every effort to keep a busy public building as secure as possible," David Pencek, Communications Manager for Schlow Library said.
And they added that if you see anything out of the ordinary you should alert volunteer or staff, who are trained to handle any emergency situations.
And of course, if you see an emergency in general you should call 9-1-1.
While police believe the sex was consensual, it's still illegal based on the juvenile's age.
Reeves is now behind bars at the Centre County Correctional Facility.
He is facing two felony charges including sexual abuse of children and criminal use of a communications facility, along with multiple misdemeanor charges.
Police said Reeves is also facing charges for providing the minor with Adderall.
