Man, 54, remanded to prison after being accused of sexually violating 14-year-old neighbour


A middle-aged man has been remanded to His Majesty’s Prison after being charged for sexually violating a minor, reportedly on February 4 this year.

Police arrested the 54-year-old male and charged him with one count of rape and one count of indecent assault against a 14-year-old girl.

He appeared before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh on Tuesday, February 7, in the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court, where his lawyer, Lawrence Daniels, attempted to make a bail application on his behalf.

However, the prosecution objected, telling the court that the man and the alleged victim are neighbours.

Chief Magistrate Walsh opted to place the alleged offender on remand, and informed Daniels that he could make his bail application in the High Court before a judge.

Attempts by Daniels to have his client held at the St. John’s Police Station until bail is acquired were also refused.

During the proceedings, the accused reportedly held his head down as he stood in the dock. SOURCE: REAL NEWS

  1. If he is found to be guilty, castration along with prison time should be the punishment. There is something fundamentally wrong with older men and little girls in Antigua. Arithmetic-54 cannot go into 14.Not a damn joke.

  2. Guys please leave the children alone. I just don’t understand why a big man will go with a child. Then when you get caught you hang your head in shame. You shame yourselves, you family, friends and worst yet sometimes you have children much older.

  3. He knows the right sham he is not he just get held dam Wicked ,lots of parent also know what there little girls doing around big men and they don’t take it serious they live it alone not even the police they get involved luck his bud
