Ghanaian player jailed two years for rape in Sweden
Ghana winger Kingsley Sarfo has been jailed two years and eight months in Swedish prison for two child rape counts, a Malmo District Court ruled on Friday morning.
The 23-year-old had been in cells for some time now after he was charged with defilement in Sweden.
Although he pleaded not guilty to the allegation levelled against him because he didn’t know the girl was under-aged, there were claims that the 23-year-old has been involved in several sexual activities against under-aged girls since joining Malmo FF.
Last month, it became glaring that the Ghanaian will be convicted after a heartbreaking picture of talented Ghanaian emerged with the enforcer in handcuffs and shackles like a terrorist as he arrived in a Swedish court from prison for the start of his rape trial.
And on Friday, a Malmo District Court presided over prosecutor Rikard Darell passed judgment on the former Sirius midfielder as he has been sentenced to two-years and eight month jail sentence.
He will also be deported from Sweden after serving his jail term.
However, his parent club Malmo FF has released a presser on their website that they will act on the matter when the board meets at on Monday.
Coach Kwesi Appiah handed Sarfo his maiden Black Stars call-up when he was invited for Ghana’s FIFA World Cup qualifier against Uganda last year but the allegations surrounding him has also halted his invitation to the Black Stars team.
