Kenyan court frees Australian after trespass conviction

A Kenyan court has freed a young Australian and placed him on probation for 12 months, after he was found inside the president's official residence in Nairobi.

Jarrod Guy, 22, was found loitering inside State House, President Mwai Kibaki's official residence, on Wednesday morning.

Nairobi's Kilimani police commander Richard Ngatia says Guy, who was charged with trespass, pleaded guilty but was freed on condition that he should not misbehave during the next 12 months.
