A 41-year-old school bus driver, who fondled the breast of a 10-year-old girl on board a bus at Adentan, has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment in hard labour by an Adentan Circuit Court.
Theophilus Laryea, charged with indecent assault, pleaded guilty with “explanation”.
The court presided over by Mrs Sedinam Awo Balokah held that Laryea’s explanations confirmed his plea of guilt.
Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Maxwell Lanyo told the court that the complainant is a network administrator and the victim’s aunty.
The court heard that the victim is a class four pupil of a school (name withheld) at Adenta and Laryea was driver of the school bus.
Chief Insp Lanyo said in July this year, the victim left her class to board the bus and accused walked to her and fondled the breast.
Prosecution said the victim reported the driver’s conduct to the school authorities.
Chief Insp Lanyo said the school’s transport manager reported the case to the police and accused was arrested, cautioned and released on bail. – GNA
