Lawyer Kpebu says Lilwin could face a 5-year jail term or a fine for the fatal accident.

Private legal practitioner Martin Kpebu has analyzed the charges filed against Kumawood actor LilWin by the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service. [irp]

The actor is accused of dangerous driving and negligently causing harm in an accident that resulted in the tragic death of three-year-old Tawiah Ampomah.

Kpebu explained that if found guilty, LilWin could face imprisonment or a fine.

He noted that, based on the handling of previous accident cases, fines are more commonly imposed than prison sentences.

However, in severe cases, imprisonment can occur and may be up to five years.

“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,” Kpebu said during an interview with Joy FM.

Given the loss of life in this incident, Kpebu suggested that jail terms should be seriously considered as a punishment for road accidents.

“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,” he remarked.

LilWin was taken into police custody on Monday, June 3, 2024, after being discharged from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

He was subsequently granted bail set at GH¢50,000, and the case has been adjourned to June 27, 2024.

The accident occurred on May 25, 2024, in front of Grace Baptist Church in Amakom, Kumasi.

LilWin’s Benz collided head-on with another vehicle, resulting in injuries to several passengers and the tragic death of the 3-year-old boy.

All injured parties, including LilWin, were promptly transported to the Accident and Emergency Unit of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

Despite his injuries, the actor made an appearance at the premiere of his new movie, “A Country Called Ghana,” at the KNUST CCB Auditorium later that day.

In response to the incident, LilWin’s management pledged full support to the bereaved family following the tragic loss of the child.
