Nicholas Ninow guilty of rape

Nicholas Ninow has been found guilty on two counts of rape, possession of drugs and defeating the ends of justice.
The 21-year-old appeared in the Gauteng North High Court today.
Last week he confessed to raping a seven-year-old girl in the ladies’ bathroom the Dros restaurant.
Ninow pleaded not guilty to an assault charge.
In a guilty plea read out by his legal representative, Ninow confessed to raping the little girl, then 7, after she walked in on him while he was in the women’s bathroom using drugs.
He, however, refuted allegations of premeditation.
The State, however, questioned Ninow’s explanation and said he intended to harm the little girl.
State prosecutor Dorah Ngobeni cited this was due to Ninow failing to bring the court into its faith in his statement and rather opting to supply a false version of what took place on 22 September 2018.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has indicated that it will be arguing for life imprisonment.-IOL
