Joseph Sedor, a 21-year-old unemployed guy, was given a four-year prison sentence for robbery.
He entered his neighbor’s home illegally and took goods worth GH138,390.
A double-deck refrigerator, a stove, an oven, 36 articles of clothing, and six pillows were among the things.
The defendant was accused of causing damage, breaking into a building without permission, and stealing. He entered a plea of guilty to each allegation and was found guilty on his own admission last Monday in an Adenta Circuit Court presided over by Her Honor Sedinam Awo Balokah.
Ms Balokah convicted the accused to one year on count one (causing damage), one and a half years
on count two (unlawful entry) and four years on count three (stealing) to run concurrently.
The prosecutor, Chief Inspector, Maxwell Lanyo, in his submission, told the court that the
complainant, Eric Gaanu, was a Detective Lance Corporal stationed at Madina, Accra. He was also the
caretaker of the house where the robbery took place.
Chief Inspector Lanyo said the house belonged to one Madam Chyskysha Ennis, who lived in France.
The prosecutor said Sedor was a resident of Agbogba, Accra, and on March 4, 2023, at midnight, he destroyed the main security door in order to gain access into Madam Chyskysha’s house.
He said all the items were retrieved from the convict after he was caught by the complainant/caretaker. When questioned, Sedor said he acted alone.
