Laldeo Jadgeo called ‘Basha’, a 62-year-old rice farmer of Devonshire Castle, Essequibo Coast, who was found guilty on three counts of rape of a child under 16 years, was on Wednesday jailed for 15 years by Justice Jo Ann Barlow. 

The pensioner committed the offence between September and October 2019 at Lima Sands Backdam on a 15-year-old boy. The convicted child rapist was sentenced to 13 years in prison on the first and second counts, respectively.  

A 15-year sentence was imposed on the third count. Justice Barlow, however, ordered that the sentences run concurrently, meaning that Jagdeo will only serve 15 years. At Wednesday’s sentencing hearing, the convict maintained that he was innocent of the crime, telling the court that his penis had stopped erecting since he was 55.
