Court hands Ali Gabass 25-year sentence

Dr Sulley Ali-Gabass has been found guilty of defiling a 16-year-old and has been sentenced to 25 years in prison by an Accra Circuit Court.
He was acquitted and discharged on the second count of unnatural carnal knowledge.
The judge said there was evidence of school records that confirmed the victim is below 18 years despite the argument by the defendant that he was older.
The Takoradi-based doctor walked out of court smiling on his way to begin his sentence. But his wife who had bowed her head throughout proceedings Monday was left in uncontrollable tears.

He is alleged to have in the months of October 2013 and April 2014 at Kasoa and Alajo respectively, had sex with a boy aged 16.

According to the police, during the month of October 2013, Dr. Gabass arranged and met the victim at Kasoa New Market area where he forcibly had anal sex with the victim in his car in front of the Kasoa HFC Bank.

Early on, his lawyer made an attempt to stop the trial, which hit a snag as the court threw out his submission of no case.
