Stepdad jailed for committing incest

The Agona Swedru Circuit Court has handed a 10-year jail term to Emmanuel Kwevi , a farmer, for sleeping with his stepdaughter. 

Kwevi, who looked older than 60 years but claimed to be 48, was convicted on his own plea of guilty but the Swedru District Magistrate, Mr Kwaku Baah Frempong, deferred the sentence due to the district court’s lack of jurisdiction.

When he appeared before the Agona Swedru Circuit Court on Thursday, January 17, 2014, the presiding judge of the Akyem Swedru Circuit Court, Mr Yaw Atta Sampong, doing additional duties, slapped Kwevi with 10 years’ incarceration with hard labour.

Kwevi pleaded guilty to the charges of incest and defilement, prompting Mr Sampong to hand him the custodial sentence.

Kwevi reportedly threatened to kill his victim spiritually; he claimed that he was a spirit who was trailing her (victim) anywhere she went so if she decided to tell anyone about her ordeal, she would die instantly.

Those threatening words from Kwevi after each sexual encounter, reportedly, scared the girl and prevented her from revealing her ordeal until she informed a friend in school about the pains she felt after each sexual act with Kwevi.
