American Couple Accused of Child Torture in Uganda Released on Bail


An American couple jailed in December for abusing a 10-year-old boy in their care were granted bail by a Ugandan court on Thursday, according to their lawyer.

Nicholas and Mackenzie Spencer, both 32, must answer for “aggravated child trafficking” and “aggravated torture” against the young boy between December 2020 and December 2022, according to court records seen by AFP.

The pair was detained in December after a report from the child’s babysitter, who was educated in a special school for challenged children. The nurse had complained about “repeated inhumane and unacceptable treatment.”
