-being investigated for similar offence

Twenty-year-old Jemison Williams was remanded to prison by Magistrate Adela Nagamootoo at the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court yesterday after he was charged with carnal knowledge of a girl under 15.

Williams is alleged to have carnally known the girl between August 25, 2008 and September 14, 2009, at Sheet Anchor Village, East Canje.

Police prosecutor, Corporal Roberto Figueira, objected to bail, stating that the defendant had fled the jurisdiction, after allegedly committing the offence and was arrested last week in connection with another matter of a similar nature. That matter is currently under investigation.

Williams has to appear in court again on April 3.
