A youth was lately sentenced to serve a four-year jail term for attempting to rape a 50-year-old woman.

Magistrate Amadou Baldeh of Basse Magistrates' Court sent one Momodou Sankareh to jail for making an early morning attempt to rape a 50-year-old woman, who was at the time, answering to the call of nature in a toilet.

According to Magistrate Baldeh, there was a need to insulate the convict from the greater society as a way of sending signal to others. He added that Sankareh would be deported at the end of his term in prison.
