Ninow's Gran Tells Court: 'he's Not Just The Dros Rapist ... There's A Side I Raised To Be A Good Boy'

Convicted child rapist Nicholas Ninow's grandmother, who raised him, has pleaded with the court to recognise he is not just the so-called Dros rapist, but that he also has a good side.

Taking the stand to testify in mitigation of sentence in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Wednesday, Pauline Gericke said there were two sides to Ninow.

"I want the court to recognise that Nicholas is not just the Dros rapist. There's another side to Nicholas, there's a good side, there's a side that I love, there's a side that I raised to be a good boy," Gericke said as she broke down in tears, sobbing uncontrollably.

"But, because of the first eight years of his life, when he was abused and used, and because of the drugs that was brought into his life - and I do not for one minute say that Nicholas should not be punished - I do not say that he's innocent, he is guilty, I know that.

"But I do believe that there are mitigating circumstances and that there is another side to Nicholas, that he is not the Dros rapist ... that's all I have to say," she told the court.
