Teenager sentenced for raping maid appeals

By Staff

An Arab teenager accused of raping an African househelp who alleged that she gave birth to his baby has appealed to the Ras Al Khaimah Court of Cassation.

The Court of First Instance as well as the Court of Appeal sentenced both the 15-year-old boy and the maid to three months imprisonment, reported 'Al Khaleej' newspaper.

The incident came to light two years ago when the teenager's family accompanied the housemaid to hospital for delivery and learnt she had no marriage certificate. Hospital authorities informed police.

On questioning, she allegedly confessed that she became pregnant after a relationship with the teenager.
