Prior to his sentence Ndego pleaded with the high court judge for leniency saying he was a student who had to go back to continue his education but Justice Kocuvie-Tay said she took into consideration the fact that Ndego had spent close to two and half years on remand and that he needed to continue his schooling, adding that he had also been obedient and respectful throughout proceedings in court.
