A student has been sentenced to one yr in prison after he pleaded guilty to stealing a DVD machine valued at 4,200 shilings in Kisumu.

In his plea agreement before Senior Resident Magistrate Jared Sala, Stephen Omondi admitted that on July 26, 2013, he broke into Dorothy Achieng's house in Kisumu's Obunga Estate and fled with the device.

The court heard that Omondi stole the LG DVD machine and installed it in his brother's house where he used it to watch movies and other videos.

The prosecution had initially sought a medical Age Assessment carried out on the suspect after he claimed to be a minor aged 17yrs old.
However, the report presented in court revealed that the accused was more than 18yrs of age.

Justice Sala ruled that the accused was competent to stand trial
before sending him to 1 yr in prison.
