…jailed for 20 years
Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall on Monday handed down a 20-year imprisonment sentence to a 63-year-old man, who on his first court appearance admitted to the offence of rape committed in 2016.
The charge against Gregory Ramkissoon also known as “Skeage” stated that on January 4, 2016, in the county of Demerara, he engaged in sexual penetration with a four-year-old child.
Presenting the State’s case in the Sexual Offences Court of the Demerara High Court were Prosecutors Tuanna Hardy in association with Sarah Martin. Meanwhile, the now convicted man was represented by Attorney Ravindra Mohabir.
Before handing down the sentence, Justice Morris-Ramlall took into consideration the nature and gravity of the offence, the manner in which it was committed, and the fact that Ramkissoon took an early plea and did not waste the court’s time.
He was given a total of 20 years’ imprisonment and will be eligible for parole after serving 15 years.
Ramkissoon was also convicted of indecent assault and sexual assault committed on the same victim.
