In the matter between Johannes Paulus Bocky and The State: Namibia High Court, 2013

Date December 29, 20152:04 pm

The appellant was arranged in the regional court on counts of house breaking, rape and robbery. Upon conviction, the appellant claims that the judge had erred in his acceptance of evidence, judgment and sentencing.

The appellant therefore seeks for condonation which is granted with some sentences set aside and others to be served concurrently.

“The crimes of rape and robbery are two separate and unrelated crimes for which the appellant in respect of each had to form a different intent, albeit the robbery having been committed immediately after the rape.”
