Man pleads guilty to aggravated burglary
A 31-year-old man has admitted to aggravated burglary in Supreme Court — but maintains a plea of not guilty for sexual assault.
The defendant, who had earlier denied both charges, switched to a guilty plea to count one as Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons prepared a jury for his trial.
He admitted to entering a residence as a trespasser and inflicting actual bodily harm on September 1, 2009. Neither he nor his victim can be named for legal reasons.
Mrs Justice Simmons set October 1 as a sentencing date.
According to Crown counsel Susan Mulligan, the defendant — whose trial was delayed in April after he claimed to be hearing voices sent from God — has been deemed competent to stand trial.
Ms Mulligan said the sexual assault charge will remain on his file. The defendant was remanded into custody.
