Valens (a 19-year-old youth) is sentenced to 10 years in prison for defiling and impregnating a 16-year-old girl. Valens challenges the decision, and requests for a reduced sanction, saying that he and the girl were in love, and were planning to get married, and that the girl had told him she was 19-years-old. The girl also admits that she had lied to Valens about her age, because she feared Valens would no longer want to marry her, if he knew she was only 16 years old; she also confesses that she is the one who wanted to get pregnant for Valens, because he loved him a lot and did not want to lose him. The Prosecution argues that, if Valens had not wanted to run into the offence of defilement, he would have checked the girl's identity card, to confirm her age; and that Valens should have made his marriage intention known to the girl's parents, if his intention was not just to have sex with the girl. After examining all arguments, the Court maintains the sentence.
