The Zimbabwean woman, Precious Teya who was hurled before a court for having sekz with a teenager has gained a moment of respite after she was freed on $10,000 bail, following a successful bail appeal at the High Court on Friday, March 5.
Teya who was initially denied bail when she appeared before Harare provincial magistrate Vongai Guwuriro on charges of indecent assault, won her bail application after High Court Judge Tawanda Chitapi ruled that based on the evidence presented, the juvenile was a willing and consenting participant.
Teya’s lawyer did a good job by arguing that his client did not the boy is 13-years because his mannerism and how he initiated the sexual encounter did not show he’s a minor. Passing judgment, the judge said;
The State said the appellant forced herself into the house but it is clear that this is not accurate because if it is correct, there was no reason for the victim to feed his siblings with sleeping pills.
That notwithstanding, the High Court judge granted Teya $10,000 bail. She will be back at the Magistrates’ Court on 21 April for trial.
