Penal man appears in court after 15-yr-old gets pregnant
A 25-year-old man appeared before a Siparia Magistrate this week, charged with sexual penetration against a minor after a teenaged girl became pregnant.
The incident allegedly took place between October and November in 2018 and involved a 15-year-old girl.
Police were notified of the incident when the teenager became pregnant.
The accused, Akil Solomon of Penal Rock Road, appeared before Magistrate Margaret Alert.
The charge was laid indictably and as a result Solomon was not called upon to enter a plea.
After submissions to the court, bail was granted at $75,000, with one of the conditions being that Solomon stay away from the victim.
The matter was then adjourned to March 12.
Insp Winston Francois of the Police Service Child Protection Unit was the complainant (charging officer) in this matter.
More on this as it becomes available.
