Sex offender weeps in court after getting 10 years sentence as he loses wife

It was justice well served in the end- at least- but a weeping moment for the villain; not for the punishment itself but for the fact that he lost his wife to another man at a time the sentence was imposed. weeps

Damion Rogers, 22, curses 20 June, 2016 the day he let his libido got the worst of him to, without remorse, defile a nine-year-old girl in Traditional Authority Somba area in Blantyre district for he will have to spend 10 years in prison.

Rogers was on Thursday convicted and sentenced by Blantyre Magistrates Court’s Chief Resident Magistrate Innocent Nebi after full trial and it was during mitigation when he let his emotions loose as he broke down in tears pleading for leniency.

“Panthawi amandimanga ndinali nditaumba kumene zidina. Mvula ikayamba ndiye kuti thukuta langa lapita mmadzi (I was arrested just after molding bricks and with rains approaching, my efforts would be in vein),” Rogers lamented in his plea.

And if that was not enough, he continued to complain of how his ill-act has affected his life. He called to the court to consider the fact his wife dumped him while on remand and married another man which, he claimed, was punishment enough than serving custodial sentence.

But Magistrate Nebi did not buy into Rogers’ lamentation but to slap him with a jail term on defilement charge which is contrary to Section 138 of the Penal Code despite his insistence of innocence.

Magistrate Nebi imposed a hard-labour jail term, a lesion enough for Rogers but also a determent to would-be offenders.

Rogers hails from Mwembere village, T/A Somba in Blantyre district.

Pafunika, after 10 years akabwera, adzapeze mkazi wake ali ndi mapasa a mamuna wina. How can you force yourself into a small girl when there are too many women around there looking for men. Shame on you.
