Jean-Pierre is accused of raping a 13-year-old girl, though he argues the girl is 18 years old, and that it is consensual sex they had. The Court of First Instance declared him guilty of rape and sentenced him to life imprisonment with a fine of 100,000 Frw. The High Court where he appealed the decision upholds the said decision. At the Supreme Court, he argues that the High Court failed to determine if the girl was 13 or 18 years old, and did not seek to hear the girl's version, whereas the girl was his friend. He however later admits to the accusation, and confesses that he raped the girl, who was actually 13 years old; he apologizes and says the 15 years already spent in prison have taught him a lot of lessons, and he is willing to help sensitize other people against such acts. He pleads for a reduced sentence. The Supreme Court considers his appeal, reduces the sentence to 15 years in prison, with a fine of 100,000 Frw, and orders his immediate release as he had already spent 15 years in prison.
