The Nyinahin Magistrate Court has sentenced a farmer, Azumah Issah, to 700 days imprisonment for escaping from lawful custody.

The convict, who had been arrested for attempted rape on April 11, feigned insanity, when arraigned.

The court therefore ordered that he should be sent to the Ankafo Psychiatric Hospital and there he escaped but was re-arrested at Appiakrom in the Atwima-Mponua District on November 15.

He pleaded guilty to the offence.

The court presided over by Mr Sam Nibi directed the police to prosecute the convict for rape.
