A 40-year old farmer at Ajumako Mando in the Central Region was on Tuesday sentenced to seven years imprisonment in hard labour by a Cape Coast Circuit Court for defiling his 13 year-old daughter.

The convict, Isaac Okyere, who pleaded not guilty to the charges of defilement and incest, was found guilty by the court after trial.

The court presided over by Mr. Kofi Seshie Ametewee  sentenced Okyere to seven years for defilement and three years in hard labour for incest ; to run concurrently.

Prosecuting Police Chief Inspector Christina Sampong told the court that Okyere and his daughter (victim), a class six pupil, had been living together at Tweikukrom near Ajumako Mando for the past ten years after her mother divorced him and left for Accra.

She said on Friday February 16, 2015, the victim went to the Ajumako Police station and reported that her father had forcibly had sexual intercourse with her in his room.

Chief Inspector Sampong said Okyere was arrested and handed over to the Domestic Violence Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) at Breman Asikuma for further investigations, which revealed that, on Saturday January 24, this year, at about 1700hrs; Okyere returned from his farm with the victim, lured her into his room and sexually abused her.

The prosecution said the victim narrated her ordeal to her grandmother who refused to act on it hence the victim’s decision to lodge a complaint at the police station where a medical form issued and endorsed by a medical doctor indicated that she had been defiled.
