A Takoradi circuit court has sentenced a 42 year old unemployed, Kwesi Botwe to a total of 30 years imprisonment for defiling and impregnating his 15 year old daughter.
He was sentenced 15 years each for defilement and incest but he is to serve the two concurrently.
Prosecuting, Lance Corporal Philomena Johnson told the court that, the convict, a resident of Appremdu in the Effia Kwesimintsim municipality, is married to the complainant, Faustina Eshun with whom they have six children including the victim.
According to prosecution, somewhere in 2018, the mother noticed that the victim was pregnant and upon questioning, she mentioned her father and her Auntie’s husband of being responsible.
Report was quickly made to the Kwesimintsim police leading to the arrest of the convict, however the other culprit, one Daniel Kwofie absconded.
During interrogation, the convict admitted the offence. He was therefore arraigned and sentenced accordingly
