30-year-old teacher sentenced for riding motorbike without license
The Enchi District Magistrate Court has sentenced a teacher to three days imprisonment for riding an unregistered Haojin motor bike without a license.
Cosmos Asamoah, 30, a teacher at Dwirigum Municipal Authority Junior High School, near Enchi pleaded guilty on both counts and was convicted on his own plea.
The court presided over by Mr Eric Baah Boateng in addition, slapped a fine of GHC600.00 on Asamoah and in default 90 days in prison in hard labour.
The facts of the case as presented by Detective Sergeant Joseph Kwadwo Agyare are that, the complainants, Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) officers stationed at Enchi on
September 3, this year, conducted their usual motor checks at Mile 3 on the Enchi- Asankragwa road.
Detective Sgt Agyare said around 1020hours , Asamoah arrived at the check point riding an unregistered Haojin motor bike.
The prosecution told the court that when Asamoah was asked to produce his rider’s license for inspection, he failed to do so.
He said Asamoah was therefore arrested and sent to the Enchi police station together with the motor bike which was later impounded.
