A convicted rapist was handed a suspended sentence, as well as correctional supervision, community service and R15 000 victim compensation instead of the prescribed sentence.
According to Cape Regional Court Magistrate Petro de Villiers she had found substantial and compelling circumstances to change from the prescribed sentence.
At the end of the 6-year trial convicted Wayne McBean who was accused of raping a girl from the age of 10-years-old to the age of 12-years-old in the late 1990’s.
De Villiers said that she took into consideration the victim, the community and McBean’s personal circumstances when making her decision.
