The Bekwai circuit court has handed a 7-year jail term to an excavator operator, Derrick Amponsah, for defiling a 15-year-old student.
This incident took place at Manso Yawkrom in the Amansie West District of the Ashanti Region. Derrick Amponsah bit the clitoris of a second-cycle student in the cause of the act.
The 15-year-old girl child was left bleeding profusely from her genitals after everything had happened. A detailed medical report revealed that the victim’s hymen had completely been broken.
The Prosecutor Detective Chief Inspector Stephen Ofori revealed to the court that, Mr Amponsah used his fingers, penis and mouth to abuse the girl.
As a form of evidence, he noted that at about 11 a.m. April 15, 2020, the accused called the victim on phone to go and do laundry for him at home.
Mr Amponsah returned at about 1 p.m. to see the dirty clothes unwashed. According to the prosecutor, he went to the victim’s house to call her but she refused to follow him.
He returned and managed to get the girl to follow him to his house. On reaching there, he asked the girl to take the lead into his room but she objected.
The accused then dragged her inside, pushed her onto the bed and forcibly had sex with her.
Detective inspector Ofori later said Amponsah’s mother later showed up to give the victim water to clean herself.
Derrick Amponsah was arrested following a report and he subsequently admitted his guilt in his caution statement by the Police.
He was arraigned and pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and defilement.
Both acts contravene Sections 84 and 101 respectively of the Criminal Offences Act, Act 29 of 960. The court presided over by Her Honour, Joyce Boahen convicted him on his own plea.
