A teacher at Kairuni Primary school teacher in Maara constituency was Monday charged before a Chuka Court with defiling his 17-year old mentally challenged student.
The court was told that Ginson Kinyua on July 6 touched the girl’s private parts and committed the indecent act.
Before Chief Magistrate, John Njoroge, the accused pleaded not guilty of the offence and sought release on bond.
The prosecution side, however, opposed the release on bond arguing that if released, accused would compromise witnesses who had not recorded statements.
The court ordered that the accused remain in custody until July 23 when the case will be mentioned.
