A 32-year-old man accused of having carnal knowledge of a 15-year-old girl was remanded to prison when he appeared at the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrate’s court on Wednesday.
Robert Stephen of Patentia, West Bank Demerara was not required to plead to the indictable charge of having carnal knowledge of a girl between the age of 15 and 16 years and was remanded to prison by Magistrate Fazil Azeez.
It is alleged that two Saturdays ago at Patentia, Stephen unlawfully had carnal knowledge of the teenager.
The police were informed and following investigations he was arrested and charged.
The court was informed by the girl’s mother and grandmother that they could not “control” her and she had been told by Stephen that he would take her to Leguan.
