$150K bail for Freeport man on child sex charges


    A Freeport man has been granted $150,000 bail over the alleged sexual penetration of a child who is his relative.

    Police say earlier this month a girl told her doctor that she had missed her period for six months and, following a test, it was confirmed that she was pregnant.

    An investigation was launched by the Central Division’s Child Protection Unit leading to the arrest of a 28-year-old suspect.

    The man appeared in court last Friday and has been ordered not to have any communication with the victim, not to enter her premises and to report the Freeport Police Station once a week.

    The court case has been adjourned to October 14th, 2022.
