Dros rapist says the drugs and alcohol made him do it

Convicted Dros rapist Nicholas Ninow broke down in the dock of the Pretoria high court on Wednesday as he recalled his rape of a seven-year-old girl.

Ninow says that he had been on a drug and alcohol binge for three days prior to the rape and that he recalled very little of the event. In mitigation of his sentencing, Ninow stated that he was under the influence of drugs and not in his correct state of mind. He holds that he did not intentionally target the child.
