Nicholas Ninow has been sentenced to life imprisonment for rape.
Judge Mokhine Mosopa summarised the pre-sentencing evidence and said the fact that Ninow chose a child as his victim, is a case for concern.
"The accused is a young person. At the time [of the rape] the accused had a fiance who was pregnant with his child.
Meanwhile the court earlier heard that Ninow has a "chaotic" childhood, and was exposed to drugs by his mother. He was also sexually abused.
