In his ruling the Magistrate (Mr. Barasa) said that the court considered evidence produced in court by prosecution in relation to the nature of offences committed.

“I have considered your mitigation and the nature of the offences committed, on the first three counts of robbery with violence you will be sentenced for 30 years whereby the sentence will run concurrently. On three counts of gang defilement each one of you will serve a jail term of 20 years on each count, the sentence will run consecutively,” ordered Mr Barasa

The Magistrate went ahead to grant the three 14 days to appeal.

The three suspects were said to have committed the crimes with others not before court while armed with dangerous weapons including pangas, rungus and iron bars.
