Civil servant charged with sex offences

A civil servant accused of a series of sexual offences against a child appeared in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

The 43-year-old Sandys man was charged with seven offences.

Prosecutors alleged that on March 27, the defendant showed a boy, who was under the age of 16, pornographic material and touched him for a sexual purpose.

The defendant was also accused of communicating with the boy online for the purpose of committing an indecent act and sexually touching the complainant on a date between March 26 and July 14.

The man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was not required to enter a plea because the case must be heard in the Supreme Court.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released the defendant on $10,000 bail and ordered him to have no contact with his alleged victim

The case was deferred until October 1 in the Supreme Court.

It is The Royal Gazette’s policy not to allow comments on stories regarding criminal court cases. This is to prevent any statements being published that may jeopardise the outcome of that case.
