Convicted rapist Nicholas Ninow was sentenced to life in jail in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Thursday.

 

In handing down sentencing, Judge Mokhine Mosopa found that Ninow had made no compelling submissions to deviate from the minimum prescribed sentence for rape.  Judge Mosopa explained that Ninow had blamed his drug usage for his actions, but continued taking drugs while in prison, while awaiting trial, adding he further failed to show he was truly remorseful.

He said that while Ninow had written a poem for the victim and a letter to the family, they never reached their intended recipients and was only brought up in sentencing proceedings.
