A 19-year-old caterer was on Wednesday put before an Accra Circuit Court for allegedly sodomising a nine-year-old hearing impaired boy at Agbado in Accra.
Reginald Annan, charged with defilement, pleaded not guilty.
The court presided over by Mrs. Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku admitted him to bail.

Prosecution said when the complainant entered the house after the unsuccessful search, the victim ran to her. The victim then removed his jeans shorts, bent down and used his finger to point at his anus.
When the complainant demanded to know what had happened to the victim, he pulled her towards the accused’s porch and demonstrated how the accused lured him into his (accused person’s) mother’s hall and had anal sex with him.
Prosecution said the complainant then asked Annan why he did that, he became offended and slapped her (complainant) in the face.
