Accra, Feb. 4, GNA - A 24-year-old drivers' mate who gave pills to a 15 year old girl to have sex with her on Friday appeared at a Circuit Court charged with defilement.

The case as presented by Chief Inspector Emmanuel Boison was that the complainants were the parents of the victim, who resided at Teshie, Accra.

The Prosecution said on January 26, this year, the victim's parents travelled to Nkawkaw for a funeral and on that same day, 'T T' a cousin of the victim asked her to accompany him to a nearby shop but on their way, they met Boye, who asked TT to leave the victim in his custody.
