Peter Yeboah, an unemployed man was on Friday sentenced by an Accra circuit court to eight years' imprisonment for defiling a 14-year-old girl.
The convict according to the prosecution's fact sheet, 'camped and defiled' the victim on three separate occasions in his room at Nungua, a suburb of Accra.
The trial judge, Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku accordingly convicted Yeboah on his own guilty plea after he admitted the charge of defilement.
When the court asked him whether he had something to say, Yeboah who had admitted to having sex with the victim on three separate occasions, said, 'I have nothing to say. That was what happened.'
Prosecuting Detective Inspector Grace Bandoh, told the court that the complainant is a trader who lives with his family, including the victim, at Nungua.
According to the prosecutor, Yeboah lives with his parents in Nungua near the house of the complainant.
On October 16, this year, the complainant's wife who was the victim's step mother, alerted him that Yeboah had secretly 'camped' the victim in his house and it was likely Yeboah had had sex with her (victim).
The prosecutor said the victim's father (the complainant) rushed to Yeboah's house and found him lying naked on the victim.
D/Insp. Bandoh stated that the victim's father reported the matter to the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Ghana Police Service where a medical form was issued to the victim to attend hospital; and that upon investigation, Peter Yeboah was charged for court.
