Father to spend 15 years in jail for raping daughter


A 45-year-old Ghanaian mason will spend the next 15 years of his life behind bars for impregnating his teenage daughter, reports Ghanaweb.
The Tarkwa Circuit Court sentenced Samuel Ansah, after he pleaded guilty to the charge of incest preferred against him by the police.  
The victim, Junior High School (JHS) student who had been living with her father at Aboso in the Prestea Huni/Valley District, is said to be two months pregnant.
According to Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Juliana Essel-Dadzie, Miss Ansah had fallen sick and told the convict about her illness. Instead of giving her medications, Ansah mixed a substance with an apple drink and gave it to her to drink.
The unsuspecting teen, took the concoction, became dizzy and slept. But while she was asleep, her father raped her.
After she woke up and released she had been taken advantage of, the convict instructed her to keep it to herself.
However, last December, the teenager noticed she had taken in and informed a neighbour, who led her to the police station to make a report, which ultimately led to the arrest of her father.
