For defiling a 15-year-old, an unmarried 19-year-old was found guilty and sentenced to nine years in jail.
Detective Inspector Salifu Kamal Gumah presented the case’s facts.
The survivor was on their way to see their grandparents with two mothers.
He called her and offered love to her when he arrived at the accused’s home, and he told the two younger siblings to walk ahead.
The accused took the victim to a local drinking establishment, where he purchased a bottle of Coca-Cola and opened it on the victim’s blind hand.
The witness started to feel dizzy and tired, as well as sleepy. The accused took her home and had sex with her when she was helpless.
For some time, the woman lost consciousness and found the alleged party forcibly have sex with her.
On the day of the attack, the accused allegedly stopped the woman from going home and slept with her until the next day.
After discovering her location, the victim’s family rescued her.
Since being saved at home, the survivor bled and stained her underwear.
As a result, her father filed a complaint with the Kyebi police.
The defendant was then convicted and charged with defilement in violation of Section 101 of Act 29/60, which made it illegal to have sex with a person under the age of 16 without her consent.
The accused admitted to purchasing a bottle of Coke, but denied accompanying her to the store and possessing carnal knowledge of her.
The case was found guilty and sentenced by the Kibi Circuit Court, which was presided over by His Honor Peter Oppong-Boahen.
