Kenyan man jailed for raping a minor in North Carolina, USA

Published

on

A 24 year old Kenyan man has been sent to prison in the United States after pleading guilty to rape charges.

Leonard Kiptoo Langat, the son to a former Woman Representative from the Rift Valley, was sentenced to 12 to 24 years in prison for the sexual offence.

Langat, a member of the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland,  pleaded guilty to indecent liberties with a minor, who police said was also his family member.

The Capital, a local publication, reports that Midshipman Leonard Kiptoo Langat, 24, is on a leave of absence pending an administrative process to separate him from the academy after he was sentenced to 12-to-24 years in prison for a sex crime involving a girl in Concord.

He was undergoing military training at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and now faces expulsion from the military academy.

The minor is reported to be the sister to his elder brother’s wife. The New York Times reported that the man is currently on leave of absence pending dismissal from the military school after being convicted.

Langat was on holiday when he committed the offence on December 30th last year. He entered the room of the minor and forced her to have sex with him, but was found in the act by a woman related to him, said Capt. John Tierney of the Concord Police Department.

“Langat, who lived in North Carolina, left the state after the incident and returned to the Naval Academy,” Tierney said.

He was arrested on January 9th and was charged with first-degree forcible sexual offense and statutory rape of a person less than 15 years old.

He pleaded guilty to indecent liberties with a minor before Cabarrus County Superior Court in North Carolina.

You can easily migrate to and work in the US if you have these extraordinary abilities

Published

on

US Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a new section in the USCIS Policy Manual relating to the O nonimmigrant classifications. O-1 nonimmigrant status is available for aliens of “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, business, education, and athletics, and aliens with a record of “extraordinary achievement” in the motion picture or television industry, who are coming to the United States temporarily to work in their area of ability or achievement. O-2 nonimmigrant status is available for essential support personnel coming solely to assist an O-1 artist or athlete.

The new section expands guidance on evaluating O-1 eligibility, including how officers determine if the petitioner has satisfied the evidentiary criteria and established that the beneficiary has extraordinary ability or extraordinary achievement, as applicable. It also clarifies when a petitioner may rely upon “comparable evidence” to meet the requirements for certain O-1 beneficiaries.

USCIS is also incorporating existing guidance relating to certain nonimmigrant athletes, coaches and entertainers (otherwise known as the P-1, P-2, and P-3 nonimmigrant classifications), and their essential support personnel into the Policy Manual.

For more information, see the USCIS Policy Manual.
