I turned into a thief because of the demands from my pregnant wife some time ago, a man has confessed.
The hardship in life has coerced many people to engage in certain acts they would not have started on a normal day and the story of Kingsley Kwame Yeboah is no different.
Kwame reportedly stole sacks of used clothes and shoes from his colleague traders valued at GH¢10,570 from the Kantamanto Market.
He said his work was not earning him enough to take care of the pregnant woman and pleaded guilty to stealing and prayed the Court to be lenient with him.
The Court presided over by Mrs. Susana Eduful, considered his plea for mitigation, and the fact that he was remorseful, sentenced him to eight months imprisonment in hard labor.
Yaw Yeboah, another trader who was charged alongside Kingsley for alleged dishonestly receiving, denied the offense with the reason that Kingsley did not sell 150 pairs of shoes to him as alleged, but brought them to him for safe-keeping.
