A 33-year-old Kitty, Georgetown resident was on Monday released on $300,000 bail after he was charged with posting nude photographs of a 16-year-old girl on his WhatsApp status.
Ryan Seecharran pleaded not guilty to the charge which was read to him by Principal Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The charge stated that on January 10, 2021, at Kitty, he used a computer system to publish obscene/explicit photographs of the young girl to humiliate and cause her substantial emotional distress. He will make his next court appearance on February 15.
Based on information, Seecharran and the teenager are friends.
As the friendship progressed, Seecharran asked the girl to be in an intimate relationship with him, but she declined his request.
The Prosecution is contending that Seecharran then became angry, and it is alleged that he posted nude photographs of the girl on his WhatsApp status.
According to the facts of the case, the girl had sent the pictures to a female friend, who, in turn, sent them to the defendant. More charges are expected to be laid against Seecharran, according to the Prosecutor.
