Teacher in trouble for allegedly defiling his pupil aged 15

A teacher who allegedly defiled his 15-year-old pupil after showering her with gifts at Dome Pillar Two has appeared before an Accra Circuit Court.

George Odum Mensah aged 24, has pleaded not guilty to defilement.

Odum has been admitted to bail in the sum of GHC10,000.00 with two sureties, one to be a public servant by the court presided over by Mrs. Rita Abrokwah-Doko.

Prosecuting Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire said the complainant is a mason living with his family including the victim at Dome Pillar and Mensah is a teacher in one of the schools within the vicinity.

Chief Inspector Atimbire said in November last year, the victim’s mother employed Mensah to assist her daughter (the victim) with extra classes’ activities at home after school from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

As a result, Prosecution said the victim’s mother allocated to them one of her rooms to be used as a study room. In February this year, the prosecutor said Mensah took advantage of that and had sex with the victim in the study room.

The prosecutor said sometime after the act, Mensah gave the victim gifts including beads, ear-rings, two ladies’ purse, ribbons, and pregnancy test kits.

The victim’s mother, however, found the items and when she quizzed the victim she informed her that it was Mensah who gave them to her after having sex with her.

The victim’s mother then warned the accused not to step in her house and he should desist from talking to the victim again.

Prosecution said On October 14 this year, the victim’s mother saw her (the victim) with Samsung Galaxy Express Two mobile phone and she confided in her mother that it was the accused who gave it to her in the month of September this year.

The prosecutor said when the victim’s mother scrolled through the phone, she saw a picture of the accused person’s penis which he had sent to the victim through Whatsapp chat.

That same day the victim, the prosecution said, left the house and her mother went to report the matter to the Police and Mensah was arrested.
