The facts as narrated by Detective Inspector J. B. Asante are that the complainant was a carpenter residing at Korle –Gonno in Accra with her daughter, who is the victim in the case.

Lamptey also resides in the same area.

Inspector Asante said the victim lived with her father at Korle-Gonno. On July 20, this year, the complainant was informed by the victim’s brother that he saw the victim and the convict in a room.

Prosecution said the victim’s father reported the matter to the Police at Mamprobi and Lamptey was arrested and a medical form was issued to the victim.

The prosecutor said during interrogation, Lamptey confessed that he had sex with the victim once, and that, he was then under the influence of alcohol.
