The matter has been adjourned to June 2, for Case Management Conference.
Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Kofi Atimbire, said the complainant was the mother of the victim who together with the accused reside at Teshie.
He said in the afternoon of April 30 this year, the complainant returned from town and was informed by one of her workers that the accused was caught having sex with the victim.
