The convicted, a trader was dragged before the court last Friday and charged with the offense of defilement and incest.

He pleaded guilty to the charges and the court presided over by Christiana Cann convicted him on his own plea but deferred his sentencing to today, Monday, February 24.

The convict is said to have forcibly had sex with his own daughter(name withheld) and continued to sexually abuse her on multiple occasions.

His first encounter with the victim, who is 14, and the oldest of his five children is said to have occurred in June last year when he forcibly inserted his finger into her private part while she slept.

He then had canal knowledge of her after the incident and continued to sexually abuse her until she became pregnant.

The foul act was uncovered by the Girl Child Advocate attached to the Anyaa L/A Primary School when they saw the pregnant victim in school uniform and questioned her.

She narrated her ordeal and the matter was reported to the police and the convict was arrested.

Daniel Kwame Baah faced two counts of defilement of a child under the age of 16 and incest.

The court in passing judgment took into consideration the graveness of the offense and the need to serve as a deterrent to others who may attempt to do a similar thing.

The judge sentenced Daniel Kwame Baah to 20 years’ imprisonment in hard labor for each count. But the sentences will run concurrently so he will serve 20 years instead of 40.
