Prosecutors in Africa said a 20-year-old man is the first person to be charged in Uganda with "aggravated homosexuality" − a crime punishable by death under a controversial anti-gay law that went into effect this spring, multiple media outlets are reporting.
The Ugandan defendant was charged with the offense on Aug. 18 after he allegedly "performed unlawful sexual intercourse" with a 41-year-old man, according to Reuters, the first outlet to report the news.
The outlet did not provide information about what made the defendant's alleged crime aggravated.
