A teenager was jailed after she had sex with a 2-year-old boy.
A sex starved 18-year-old woman, who worked as a maid and babysitter in Zimbabwe, told a judge that the “devil tricked her into raping her employer's young son.”
Melissa Ncube of Gwabalanda Bulawayo, was sentenced to 10 years in prison by Senior regional magistrate Mark Dzira.
Ncube pleaded guilty to aggravated indecent assault for forcing the child to have sex with her. The woman’s actions were uncovered when the 2-year-old child asked his mother to have sex with him.
The boy approached his mother, asking her to do what Ncube had been doing with him. The mother called police and the maid was arrested.
At sentencing, Dzira rebuked Ncube for using a child to satisfy her sexual urges while exposing the child to sexually transmitted diseases.
The court has taken into account that the teenager was a first juvenile offender and that she pleaded guilty to the charges.
However, the judge said that the crime was too harsh to order her to pay a fine or do community service. Instead, she was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
