Driver’s mate jailed 10 years for smoking ‘wee’

Juaben Circuit Court jailed an 18-year-old driver’s mate ten years  for smoking Indian hemp and attempting to rape a Junior High School (JHS) student.

Maxwell Agyapong, a resident of Atimatim in the Afigya-Kwabre District, pleaded guilty and was convicted on his plea.

Police Chief Superintendent David Amoako told the court presided by Mr Yusif Osei Asibey, that the complainant was a student of the Atimatim M/A JHS.

He said on March 21, this year, during school fun games, the convict, lured the girl into his (girl) room.

According to Chief Supt Amoako, the convict told the complainant that he was a drug dealer with a lot of money and could provide her with all her needs.

He said the convict removed a wrapped brown paper containing Indian hemp and smoked it, and passed the stuff to the complainant to try, but she refused.

Chief Supt Amoako said the convict attempted to rape the complainant, but she managed to escape, and reported the matter to her teacher, who in turn made a report to the police leading to the arrest of the convict.

Prosecution said a search in his room by the police revealed 16 wrappers of Indian hemp, a cutlass, two knives, two condoms and three pairs of scissors. –  GNA
