Isaac Darko, a 38-year-old taxi driver has been handed a seven-year jail term with hard labour, by the Akim Swedru circuit court, presided over by Justice Emmanuel Bart Plange Brew, for defiling a 15-year old girl.
The victim (name withheld), according to the police was on her way back from an errand when Isaac abducted her by luring her into his taxi with registration number GT 5686-13 on January, 3 2015.
Isaac, with his diabolic intent, worked with the victim in his car for the rest of the day and finally coerced her into his room where he had sex with her.

Prosecuting police Inspector Sallah, told the court that, the accused kept the victim in his room until a radio announcement which put the fear of God in him, made him let go off the teenager, on the dawn of 8th January, at about 12:30am.
Isaac took the victim to Akim Awisa lorry station and asked her to go home, having warned her not to inform any one of her ordeal.
However, her mother, who had earlier lodged a complaint, chanced upon her and took her to the police station where upon interrogation, she mentioned the name of the accused as the one who took her to his room and forcibly defiled her.
The police issued the victim with a medical form for examination. The resultant report from the hospital, confirmed that indeed, Isaac had defiled her.
The accused was arrested and he admitted in a cautioned statement of having committed the crime.
