The case against Jeffrey Donson, according to court documents After a sustained and difficult search, Daily Maverick has managed to obtain court records of Donson’s appeal against his sentence, dated 10 October 2008.

In August 2004, Donson met a 15-year-old schoolgirl from Calitzdorp, who attended parties at the venue. In court papers, it was said that Donson had a “sexual relationship” with the girl, which lasted for a month. The court papers outline “sexual intercourse” between Donson and the girl, including in his car and his municipal office. The court questioned why Donson and two of his associates, all in their late thirties or early forties, would hang out with teenagers. In the original judgment, the judge found that Donson’s misdeeds were of a serious nature and that a suspended sentence was not suited to the crime.

In his ruling on Donson’s appeal, Judge Lee Bozalek upheld the original guilty verdict, but sentenced Donson to nine months’ imprisonment, suspended for five years, on the condition that Donson was not found guilty of the same charge or any misconduct of a sexual nature involving a child during the period of the suspended sentence.
