A 40-year-old married man, who took a 15-year-old mentally ill girl into hiding and sexually assaulted her multiple times for four days, has been sentenced to 11 years imprisonment by an Aflao Circuit Court.
Jacob Dotse Sedzedo, a farmer and father of two, was sentenced on his own plea of guilty.
Inspector Esperance Agbo prosecuting told the court presided over by Mr Ali Baba Abature, that Sedzedo lived with his wife and children at Nogokpo, where the victim, mentally-deranged also resided with the parents.
He said early this month, the suspect took advantage of a brief travel of his partner and lured the victim who strayed out of home at the blind side of her parents, who keeps very close eyes on her because of her condition into his house.
Mr Agbo said Sedzeddo subjected the victim to a four-day sexual ordeal until victim’s parents’ cries over her whereabouts reached everywhere.
He said after Sedzeddo had released her the victim revealed her ordeal leading to Sedzedo’s arrest.
