Convicted child rapist Nicholas Ninow’s grandmother, Pauline Gericke, will continue her testimony on Thursday morning during mitigation of sentencing.

This after she pleaded with the court to recognise that Ninow is not just the so-called Dros rapist, but that he also has a good side. After a week-long trial in September this year, Judge Mokhine Mosopa found Ninow guilty of rape, possession of an illegal substance and defeating the ends of justice.
