Man accused of using ‘telecommunication’ to lure young girls

A 22-year-old man charged with luring young girls and intruding on their privacy was today charged in Magistrates' Court.

The defendant, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo.

He was not required to enter a plea, as the charges are indictable and must go before the Supreme Court.

The Hamilton Parish resident was charged with luring an 11-year-old “by means of telecommunication” and intruding on her privacy.

The offences are alleged to have occurred between June 1 and July 31.

He was also accused of committing the same offences against a 14-year-old girl between May 27 and May 29.

The man was further charged with intruding on the privacy of a 16-year-old girl between May 1, 2012 and July 15, 2013; and a 19-year-old girl between May 1, 2013 and July 31, 2013.

Mr Tokunbo called the allegations “serious” and remanded the man in custody until a court appearance on November 1.
