Accra, March 29, GNA - Kwasi Sam, a sawmill apprentice, who allegedly had anal sex with a 12 year old boy at Teshie, has had his case referred to the Department of Social Welfare.
This follows an order by an Accra Circuit Court to the Department to conduct background checks and submit a report on Sam, who has been charged with defilement of a child under 16 years.
Sam, who pleaded guilty, has been remanded into Police custody and is expected to be sentenced on April 19.
The court, presided over by Mrs Ruby Naa Adjeley Quaison, on March 11, had deferred Sam's sentence to today.
Giving the facts of the case earlier in court, Detective Inspector Kofi Atimbire, said the complainant resided at Teshie with the victim, while the accused person also resided in the same vicinity.
The Prosecution said when the complainant returned from a journey about three weeks ago, and the victim informed her that Sam had been having sex with him through his anus since November last year.
The complainant, consequently, reported the matter to the Police and she was given a police medical form to send the victim for examination and treatment.
The Prosecution said when the complainant sent the medical report to the Police, Sam was picked up.
In Sam's caution statement, the Prosecution said, he admitted the offence.
