Criminal Volunteers To Become A Crime-Free Society Ambassador

A convicted criminal has volunteered to advocate for a Crime free society among the youths.

Jared Omwacha Mbogo was convicted of the offence of obtaining money by false pretence after he pleaded guilty to the offence.

According to the court documents, Jared obtained Ksh 27,800 from his employer Miller Baker Roger pretending he would supply him with 56 chickens from Kisii.

The accused person was said to have switched off his phone on November 5, 2022, after receiving the cash only for him to resurface days later with a narrative that the chickens were stolen on his way to Nairobi.

He was arrested after approaching his employer pleading with the employer to allow him to offer free service to compensate the money.

The court was told that the accused confessed to police officers that he had spent the said cash on alcohol, but he blamed the devil for having led him to commit the heinous offence.

He, however, told magistrate Micheni Wendy to forgive him while promising to be an ambassador to the youths across the country and preach a crime-free society among the youths who in most cases find themselves on the receiving end of the criminal Justice wrath.
