Koffi Olomide arrested for raping a 15-years old girl.

Koffi Olomide has been found guilty of the statutory rape of one of his former dancers when she was 15.

Olomide was handed a two-year suspended jail sentence by a court in France in absentia, as he failed to turn up. The singer went on trial after four former dancers claimed he sexually assaulted them several times between 2002 and 2006.

Koffi Olomide, 62, was ordered to pay 5,000 euros ($5,700; £4,300) in damages to the former dancer.

The court in Nanterre, outside Paris, also ordered him to pay a fine of the same amount for helping three women enter France illegally.

The order comes after he was briefly jailed in DR Congo in 2016 for kicking one of his dancers, and had already been given a suspended three-month prison sentence in 2012 for striking his producer.
