The 17-year-old who was a virgin as of the time of the rape had been infected with a sexually transmitted disease unknown to her.

Baloyi said the victim was threatened by Brickz and ordered to clean up after he raped her.

Brickz had also threatened to kill her if she told anyone.

The defence argued for a lenient sentence, but Baloyi said Brickz has not shown remorse for his crime and the court had a duty to protect the freedom of women.

Wearing grey pants, a white shirt, and a blue jersey, Brickz was all smiles as he walked into court and posed for photos to hear his fate.

He has maintained he was innocent throughout the trial and had repeatedly said, “the truth will come out.”
