Court sentences man to ten yrs in jail for raping

May 13, 20160

The Criminal Court, presided over by Judge Ahmad Al-Yaseen, sentenced a man to 10 years in jail for raping a teenage girl and entering her house, while it acquitted the siblings of the victim of assault and immoral offense against the accused.

Case files indicate that the accused used to frequent the house of his friends during which he had his way with the victim and molested her.  The victim told investigators she never reported the incident because the accused threatened to post her pictures on the Internet and harm her family.

According to police investigations, the victim had a relationship with the accused for almost a year and the accused was a friend of the victim’s siblings until he took the mobile phone of the victim and demanded KD100 from her in exchange for the phone.

The victim told her siblings about the issue, so the accused went to the victim’s house after being promised that he will be given the cash in exchange for the phone.  When he arrived at the house, the siblings appeared and assaulted him, where as the accused claimed that the siblings of the victim offended him immorally.

Lawyer for the victim’s siblings, Attorney Enaam Haydar, pointed out in court the lack of substantial evidence against her clients considering the accused did not sustain injuries or psychological damage.  She said her clients denied the charges leveled against them from the beginning of investigations.
