Wielder gets 15 years for defiling girl, 10

An Accra Circuit court has sentenced a 30-year-old welder to 15 years imprisonment in absentia for defiling a 10-year-old girl at Lakeside Estate, near Adenta, Accra.


John Winter lured the girl into an uncompleted building, defiled her, gave the victim one Ghana cedi and a school bag, and asked her not tell anyone about the incident.


Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire told the court presided by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku that the complainant is a labourer, and the victim a class three pupil.


Prosecution said Winter resides in the same area with the complainant, and the victim at Lakeside Estate, near Adenta.


Chief Insp Atimbire said On October 29, 2016, the complainant, who had been supporting the victim and her two sisters with food, noticed changes in the way the victim walked.


The court heard that the victim told the complainant that Winter lured her into an uncompleted building, had sex with her, and gave her one Ghana cedi and school bag, and warned her not to tell anyone about the act.


Chief Insp Atimbire on November 1, 2016, Winter was nabbed by the complainant, and he lodged a complaint with the police.

Prosecution said the police issued the victim with a medical form to attend hospital. – GNA
