Lilwin Could Face 5-Years Jail Term – Lawyer

Private Legal Practitioner, Martin Kpebu has addressed the possibility of a jail term for actor Kwadwo Nkansah popularly known as Lilwin.

Commenting on the possible punishment for Kwadwo Nkansah, if he is found guilty of the charges levelled against him, Martin Kpebu indicated that there is the possibility of him being incarcerated.

To him, because a 3-year-old is dead, it will be imperative for Lilwin to be jailed to serve as a deterrent to many reckless drivers on the roads in Ghana.

“In terms of penalties, imprisonment is possible, but fines are typically imposed. However, in particularly severe cases, imprisonment can occur, and it can be up to five years”.

He added in an interview with Joy FM

“We don’t often charge them with manslaughter. So, is it reckless, dangerous driving, etc.? Yes. Over the past decade, more than 2000 people have died annually in road accidents. Yet, we don’t see drivers being imprisoned for years.”

His comment comes after the actor was granted GH¢50,000 bail with two sureties by the Asokore Mampong District Court.

He was arrested on Monday, June 3 by the Motor Traffic and Transport Department of the Manhyia Divisional Command moments after he was discharged from the hospital.

Lil Win has been charged with Dangerous driving and negligently causing harm whiles the case has been adjourned to 27th June 2024.
