[www.inewsguyana.com] – A 38-year-old father of Wakapoa, Lower Pomeroon River was remanded to prison on Friday, June 05 after he appeared at the Suddie Magistrate’s Court charged with having sex with his 14-year-old daughter.
The man was not required to plea to the charge when it was read to him by Magistrate Sunil Scarce.
The charge alleged that between January1 and 31 2015, at Wakapoa community he engaged in sexual activity with a 14 year old girl who is his daughter.
Police Prosecutor Haimraj Ramsawack objected to bail pointing out that the alleged victim is presently hospitalized and is five months pregnant.
He told the court that the offense is very prevalent and is of a serious nature. The Prosecutor noted too that should the defendant be granted bail, there is the likelihood he will tamper with the victim. Bail was refused and the accused will return to court on June 26.
