Lawyer and friend sentenced to 12 years for fraud

An Accra Circuit court has sentenced Owusu Sekyere, a Senior Attorney and Albert Coleman to 12 years in a fraudulent $200,000 land transaction.

The two collected the amount from one Ato Hamilton under the pretext of providing him with a parcel of land at Cantonments in Accra but failed to do so.

The lawyer was also expected in the transaction to do due diligence in connection with the said land.

Sekyere and Coleman collected the money three years ago and the matter which commenced on November 15, 2015, in the circuit court has dragged on.

Kasapa FM’s Court Correspondent, Daakyehene Ofosu Agyemang reported that the court presided over by Mrs Malike Wornya Dey found the accused guilty of the offence of defrauding by false pretences and convicted them.
