A 38-year-old mason has been slapped with a 20-year jail term by a Bekwai Circuit Court for attempting to have anal sex with a 16-year-old boy at Adansi-Fomena in the Ashanti region.
Collins Sarfo was convicted on his own plea of guilt to a charge of attempting to commit a criminal offense, to wit unnatural carnal knowledge by the court.
Police prosecutor, Detective Sergeant Isaac Ofori-Mensah, told the court presided over by Mark Diboro, that the accused engaged the victim who had gone to help a relative at a public toilet and tried to lure him to have anal sex.
He said on October 17, 2021, the convict, Collins Sarfo again approached the victim, took out his manhood and asked the victim to lick it.
According to the prosecutor, the victim declined and ran from the scene.
The accused followed the victim to a plantain farm behind the toilet and offered the victim ¢10 if he agreed to play with his manhood.
Prosecution said the accused also offered additional ¢20 if the victim will consent to an anal sex.
The victim told Collins he would be back in the evening and communicated the development to his senior brother who in turn hinted the Unit Committee members and some members of the neighborhood watch committee.
The team laid ambush for the accused who came back to the public toilet to execute his agreement with the victim around 9 pm.
They arrested him when he removed his clothes in an attempt to have anal sex with the 16-year-old boy.
In court, he pleaded guilty with explanation and was convicted on his own plea.
“I only removed my penis and asked him to lick it but I didn’t do the anything,” he told the court.
In delivering judgement, Mark Diboro said the sentence is to serve as warning that the society doesn’t condone these acts.
He said this is the third case which has come to his notice.
