Police in Margibi County have charged and sent to court a teacher for allegedly raping a student in Weala, Margibi County.

Mr. Mohammed Ansumana Keita, 35, is accused of raping a 16-yr-old seven grade student of the John Wesley United Methodist High School where he works as physical education instructor.

According to our reporter, the Kakata Magisterial Court on October 19, 2015 has already issued a writ of arrest against Mr. Keita, charging him with statutory rape. He is remanded at the Kakata central prison otherwise known as “Carter High” awaiting trial.

Statutory rape is a first degree felony and a non-billable offence which is in violation of chapter 14 section 14.70 of the new panel law of Liberia.  The write states that Mr. Keita invited the victim to his house on Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at which time, according to the victim’s testimony, he allegedly forced her to have sexual intercourse despite of her resistance.

However, the case has been transferred to the 13th judicial circuit court owing to the fact that the magisterial lacks jurisdiction.
