$20,000 bail for accused teen

A 17-year-old Point Fortin boy has appeared in court charged with having sex with a 12-year-old girl.

The boy appeared before magistrate Maria Busby Earle-Caddle in the Point Fortin Magistrates’ Court for two counts of having sex with the girl.

The boy, who is a pupil at a trade school, was not called upon to plead to the charges since they were laid indictably by WPC Francois.

The magistrate granted him $20,000 bail, and placed him in the care of his father. The case was postponed to June 10. —Susan Mohammed
