A 12-member jury yesterday convicted Murchy Noorhan for engaging in sexual activities with a family member who was also a minor.
He was found guilty on two charges, which stated that on January 4th and January 5th, 2013, he engaged in sexual activities with a child/family member under the age of 18.
The jury returned its unanimous verdicts after about two hours of deliberations.
The convict’s sentence has, however, been deferred to December 28th to facilitate the presentation of a probation report requested by his attorney, James Bond.
The trial was held in camera before Justice Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the High Court, in Georgetown.
The state was represented by attorneys Stacy Goodings and Siand Dhurjon. They called six witnesses to the stand to establish the state’s case against Noorhan.
