Iten, Kenya: A man accused of assaulting his lawyer has been sentenced to four years imprisonment.

The accused claimed the advocate had swindled him of money the court had awarded him.

In mitigation, the accused surprised the court when he said he had nothing to say. The magistrate sentenced him to four years imprisonment and gave him 14 days to lodge an appeal.
