2012-10-03 06:51

A man was sentenced to 12 years in prison by the Pietermaritzburg Regional Court for raping his 55-year-old mother.

According to the Witness, the 30-year-old man from Sweetwaters pleaded guilty yesterday to raping his mother at the weekend after he had been drinking at a tavern.

He attacked her on Saturday in her home after she opened the door for him.

“I grabbed her, pushing her on the floor, took off my trousers and underwear and raped her,” the man said in his plea statement.

The rapist’s lawyer, Nitesh Binesarie, told the court the man was heavily drunk at the time.

The man cannot be named to protect his mother’s identity.
