Terry Ray Krieger in a Nairobi court on December 2, 2014. The American paedophile was sentenced to 50 years' imprisonment for child-sex offences.

Terry Ray Krieger, a suspected paedophile of American origin is in court yet again, on accusations of defiling a 3-year-old girl at Great Wall Gardens in Athi River this month.

Ray was arrested on November 9, and thereafter arraigned at Mavoko Law Courts on November 10, 2023. He took plea and was detained.

Today, November 21, he appeared before court, where trial magistrate Barbra Ojoo denied him bail.

Ojoo said Ray is a fugitive of justice, which is a compelling reason to deny him bail. She also noted that the accused’s previous criminal records and gravity carry reasonable terms upwards of five years.

Court dismissed the defense argument that he is an elderly man who requires urgent medical care saying there is no evidence supplied to court to show he is ill.

Ray, who was arraigned on November 10 at Mavoko Law Courts pleaded not guilty to charges of sexual assault and being in the country illegally.

Krieger first came to light in 2013 when he was arrested by Kenyan authorities for his involvement in a child sex abuse ring.

Kieger, a repeat offender, was sentenced to 50 years in prison by Magistrate Joseph Karanja in December 2014 after pleading guilty to a charge of child pornography.

In 2022, he was quietly released from prison after serving only eight years.

Krieger had filed an appeal which the then Director of Public Prosecutions, Noordin Haji, asked the High Court to dismiss.

Through Senior Assistant Prosecutor Duncan Ondimu, the DPP submitted that the evidence presented in court was in no way discredited by the defence and that Krieger readily pleaded guilty.
