The accused pleaded not guilty to aggravated defilement for performing a sexual act with his 15-year-old daughter. The judge found the accused guilty despite his denial because of DNA testing of the victim’s twin children, the testimony of the victim, and the testimony of a social worker. In dicta before sentencing, the judge stated that African traditions must be upheld and American and European abhorrent practices like sodomy and homosexuality must be avoided. The judge added that even these cultures reject incest. Then the judge sentenced the defendant to 25 years, including four years subtracted for remand served.
