We will change our ways – Sex workers beg court
Fourteen sex workers who were arrested in Accra are pleading with the court to forgive them as they would not return to the streets again.
The fourteen out of 16 prostitutes were put before an Accra District Court for soliciting for sex after they were rounded up on Sunday by the police at Danquah Circle and Togo Embassy area in Accra.
The swoop led to the arrest of persons numbering sixteen, including 10 Nigerians, five Ghanaians and a Liberian, but two pleaded not guilty while fourteen of the accused pleaded guilty to the offence.
The court drew their attention to the fact that the act of soliciting for sex was an offence against the laws of the country.
It convicted the accused on their own plea and imposed a fine of GH¢300.00 each on them.
The accused in default would serve a three-month jail term each.
The two others who denied the charged were granted bail in the sum of GH¢5,000.00 with a surety each.
According to the prosecution, the swoop formed part of Police exercises aimed at getting rid of suspected criminals who have embarked on countless number of robberies.
