Miner to face court for having sex with stepdaughter
Kaieteur News – March 26, 2008
A middle-aged miner who is accused of carnally knowing his 11-year-old stepdaughter is expected to appear in court today.
The man was arrested some time last week after he returned from the interior.
Kaieteur News understands that the man’s reputed wife, who resides in Sophia, had reported to the Police that he had been having sex with her daughter since she was 11 years old. The child is now 14 years old.
According to reports, soon after the suspect went back to the interior some time last year, the child confided in her mother that he had violated her.
The matter was reported to the Police, and a medical examination confirmed that the child was sexually molested.
Kaieteur News understands that the man returned from the interior with lots of gold and cash and was staying at his reputed wife’s home in Sophia.
However, the woman waited until he had handed over a substantial amount of the cash before informing the Police that he was back. The man was promptly arrested.
He claimed that the allegation was a fabrication, since his reputed wife was friendly with another man and was trying to get him out of the way.
