Farmer jailed 11 years for defiling minor

A Cape Coast Circuit Court has sentenced a 40- year old farmer to 11 years imprisonment in hard labour for defiling a 12 year old girl .

 



The accused, Kojo Egyir, pleaded not guilty to the charge of defilement but the Court presided over by Mrs Dorinda Arthur Smith found him guilty after trial.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector John Asare Bediako told the court that the complainant, Madam Theresa Akyen lives at Akroma a surburb of Cape Coast with the convict and the victim who is her cousin.

He said on Thursday October 18, 2018 at about 0600 hours, the girl who was sweeping the compound of their house, was spotted by the convict who then succeeded in luring her into his room and had sexual intercourse with her.

Chief Inspector said on Thursday October 25, 2018, Egyir again lured the girl into his room and sexually abused her.

The prosecution said luck run out for the convict when the complainant spotted the girl coming out of the convict’s room and questioned her for which she revealed her ordeal to her.

He said a report was made to Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) in Cape Coast where the girl was issued with a medical report form for examination and treatment at the hospital

He said the convict was subsequently arrested and after investigations charged with the offence.
