Blantyre Central Senior Resident Magistrate’s court has sentenced Justin Wyson to five years imprisonment with hard labour punishment for defiling an imbecile.
The court, through Police prosecutor Inspector Grace Kanjiwa, heard that, on 11 September 2020 at Maliyana Village, the victim went to the convict’s shop to buy some food colours.
She found him alone at the shop as other family members were attending funeral.
Wyson took advantage of this and called the victim into the latrine where he defiled her.
Kanjiwa narrated that Wyson promised the victim some money but did not fulfill the promise.
The victim then reported the matter to other people who reported to police, leading to the perpetrator’s arrest.
Appearing in court before Senior Resident Magistrate Mwanyongo, Wyson pleaded guilty to the court for the charge.
He was therefore convicted and sentenced to five years imprisonment with hard labour.
Justin Wyson 46, comes from Chinsewu Village, Traditional Authority (T/A) Kapeni in Blantyre District.
