The Tarkwa Circuit Court has sentenced a mason to 15 years’ impris­onment for defiling a primary four pupil in an uncompleted building at Himan-Prestea in the Prestea­Huni-Valley Municipality.

Thomas Aboagye, alias Mfan­tse, pleaded guilty to the charge of defilement and the presiding judge, Mrs Hathia Ama Manu sentenced him to 15 years impris­onment in hard labour.

Prosecuting, Superintendent of Police Juliana Essel-Dadzie, said the complainant, is a farmer, and grandfather of the 10-year-old victim.

The prosecution said the complainant, victim and Abo­agye lived in the same vicinity at Himan-Prestea.

Sup Essel-Dadzie said Abo­agye gave the victim GH¢10.00, lured her into an uncompleted building in the neighborhood and defiled her.

 According to the prosecution, a witness in the case, saw Abo­agye while he was having sexual intercourse with the victim.

Sup Essel-Dadzie said the witness arrested Aboagye and handed him over to the police at the Prestea.

The prosecution said Aboag­ye during interrogation admitted the offence.

Sup Essel-Dadzie said a medical report form was issued to the complainant to seek medical care for the victim, and the form, which was endorsed by a medical officer, was returned to the police.
