1.Applicant prays that this court adjusts his sentence after considering his mitigation. The applicant defiled his daughter on 2 occasions & she conceived and gave birth to a child – DNA confirmed the applicant as father of child. Because the daughter was under the age of 18 years, penalty should have been life imprisonment.
2.He was however charged under Section 8(3) of the Sexual Offences Act and sentenced to serve 20 years. The Judge in Appeal No. 183 of 2015 found the sentence to be within the law. The applicant should serve & complete sentence.
