Barber Finds Himself New Residence for Molesting Retarded Minor

A barber who defiled a 15-year-old mentally retarded girl at Adenta Housing Down has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court.

This was after Osman Alhassan aged 28, was found guilty on the charge of defilement at the end of the trial presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku.

The judgement was however read by Mrs Harriet Jane Akweley Quaye another Circuit Court Judge.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire said the complainant is a trader residing at Adenta Housing Down with the victim who is her granddaughter. The victim is a mentally retarded patient.

Chief Inspector Atimbire said the convict reside within the same vicinity with the complainant.

The Prosecution on March 7, last year, at about 1030 hours, the complainant gave the victim money to go and get her hair trimmed at Alhassan’s barbering shop.

He said the complainant waited for the victim but she never returned.

The Prosecution said the complainant therefore followed up to Alhassan’s barbering shop but did not meet the victim nor the convict there.

The Prosecution said the complainant then proceeded to the house of the convict and met Alhassan and the victim standing in front of Alhassan’s main gate.

He said when the complainant quizzed the victim as what she was doing in the convict’s house, the victim informed her that, Alhassan after trimming her hair invited her to his house and had sexual intercourse with her.

The prosecution said on March 7, last year, a report was made to the Police and a medical report form was issued to the complainant to send the victim to the hospital for further examination.

Mr Atimbire said Alhassan was later arrested by the Police.
