Ghanaians bash Judge and Policeman who sentenced ’15year old boy’ to 2 years imprisonment

15year old boy imprisoned for 2 years in Ghana

Social media users have unleashed their anger and disgust at the apparent disregard for the laws of Ghana which bars the imprisonment of Underage children.

Crime Check TV posted a picture of a boy who claims to be 15 but says the police officer who prosecuted him deliberately wrote his age as 18 which led to him being sentenced as an adult to a prison term of 2 years for theft.

The boy who according to Crime Check TV and many netizens doesn’t look anything near 18 years old is said to be an orphan and therefore had no parents to attest to his correct age.

Social media users however have bashed the judge for going ahead to sentence the boy as an adult without further verification of his age even though it was blatant that he was underage.

This of course brings into question the of quality of judgement at the lower courts post Anas’ expose of the rot in the Ghanaian judicial system.
