Man Serving Jail Term for Sleeping in Black Stars Defender, John Paintsil’s abandoned house

Isaac Odoom, a 64-year-old charcoal producer, is currently serving a 12-month jail sentence at Winneba Local Prison. He was convicted for breaking into a house owned by former Black Stars defender, John Paintsil. Isaac Odoom explained the circumstances that led to his unfortunate situation.

According to Odoom, he was misled by an acquaintance he met while visiting Besease for his charcoal business. He stated, “We got jailed for sleeping in someone’s house, which happened to belong to the footballer John Paintsil. Initially, I didn’t know it was his house, but someone led me there without disclosing the owner’s identity. The person didn’t reveal until a day after we had already slept there.”

Odoom, who hails from Ajumako, explained that when he visited Besease to produce charcoal, he usually slept at the work site. However, since he was new to the village, he relied on someone’s assistance for accommodation. He continued, “The person suggested that we sleep at a place, so I assumed it was his house. He asked us to use the window side, claiming he had issues with his mother and didn’t want her to see us.”

He clarified that the house they stayed in was abandoned and part of a legal dispute, with no belongings inside. Two days after leaving Besease and returning to his hometown, Odoom received news that someone had been arrested for trespassing in John Paintsil’s house and had mentioned his name as an accomplice.

Regarding the charges against him, Odoom pleaded guilty to two of the three charges. He was acquitted of theft but convicted of trespassing and unlawful entry. He said, “We were charged with unlawful entry and trespassing on someone’s property. Additionally, we were accused of stealing a mattress. While I pleaded not guilty to the theft charge, I admitted guilt to the other charges. I was fined GHC1440, but I couldn’t afford to pay.”
