Pretoria - Nicholas Ninow conceded he knew what he was doing was wrong when he raped a 7-year-old girl in the toilet at the Dros restaurant in Silverton last September.
As his trial got under way in the North Gauteng Court on Monday afternoon, the 21-year old's legal representative read into court his guilty plea.
Ninow admitted that he had no justification for the rape, possession of illegal substances and defeating the ends of justice.
He did, however, plead not guilty to allegedly assaulting the mother of the girl and Dros employees on the scene.
In giving his account of the day in question, Ninow alleged he had been taking excessive amounts of the drug, CAT.
