Teacher jailed for having sex with his 15-year-old pupil

A 31-yesr-old teacher who defiled a 15-year-old pupil has been sentenced to 12 years in prison by an Accra Circuit Court. Fedelix Kogbe, charged with defilement, pleaded not guilty.  

The court presided over by Mrs Christina Cann, however, found Kogbe guilty at the end of the trial and sentenced him accordingly. 

Kogbe was said to have defiled the victim on December 7, 2019, at Dome in Accra. The prosecution’s case was that the complainant is the father of the victim. They lived at Dome. The prosecution told the court that Kogbe was the former teacher of the victim. 

On December 7, 2019, at about 0800 hours, the complainant left the victim at home and went to town. 

The prosecution said the victim invited Kogbe to her house to install software on her laptop. The victim was home alone when Kogbe visited, and they sat on the victim’s bed. 

It said after Kogbe had finished installing the software and some songs on laptop, he kissed the victim and had sexual intercourse with her. 

The prosecution said the complainant returned home at about 1100 hours and heard a male voice in the victim’s room. 

When the complainant knocked and opened the door, he saw the victim in a different dress from what she was wearing when he left the house, which made him suspicious. 

The prosecutor said when the complainant entered the bedroom, he saw pieces of tissue paper on the floor, picked and sniffed them, adding “it smelled like sperms.” 

It said the complainant searched the bedroom and found Kogbe hiding in the victim’s wardrobe naked. 

The prosecution said the complainant locked Kogbe and the victim in the house and reported the incident to the Police. 

The prosecutor said Kogbe was arrested and in his caution statement to the Police claimed that he took off his shirt because the victim’s bedroom was warm and that he only kissed her.  The prosecution said investigations revealed that Kogbe had sexual intercourse with the victim who was 15 years at the time of the incident.
