JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A South African man was sentenced to life imprisonment Friday for raping a nine-month-old baby, in an attack which outraged the country known for its high levels of violent crime.
South African radio said a High Court judge found David Potse -- at one time the boyfriend of the baby's mother -- guilty after police told the court DNA samples taken from the infant had matched Potse's own.
"Judge Lacock told the court the crime was the most gruesome form of a human rights violation he had found in his 32-year-old career, and he believed the party deserved the death sentence," the radio station said.
It said Potse, 23, was sentenced to another 18 years imprisonment for indecent assault. Court officials could not be reached for comment.
The baby girl, nicknamed Tshepang (Have Hope) to protect her identity, had to have reconstructive surgery to repair her genitals and internal organs.
Some 21,000 cases of child rape were reported to South African police last year.
The attacks have been fueled by a myth that sex with a virgin will protect a man against AIDS or even cure him of the disease, that affects one in nine South Africans.
Potse's trial took place in Upington, a town in South Africa's western Northern Cape province.
In a separate case in another part of the country, a court sentenced a 48-year-old farm laborer to 27 years imprisonment for raping an 11-year old girl two years ago, the South African Press Association said.
