The incident reportedly took place as the driver was taking the child home from school. She had been entrusted in his care by a relative.
A complaint was immediately made and the man was charged and put on trial.
The entire trial took place in a closed courtroom setting because of the age of the victim. However, according to reports, the child provided a full account to the Court of what had taken place.=
After the sentence was handed down, the man quietly made his way back to the holding area of the Court, before being whisked off to jail.
