Father accused of raping daughter released on bail

A father accused of raping his nine-year-old daughter was released on bail when he appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

His attorney, Martie Garnes, however stressed the man had a good defence to the charge.

The 29-year-old Christ Church man was not required to plead to having unlawful sexual intercourse with the girl on July 12.

Prosecutor Sergeant Kenmore Phillips objected to him being released. He said the accused was on bail for another offence under the Sexual Offences Act and the court must protect the vulnerable in society. (HLE)
