51-year-old man in court for sexual penetration of a minor


    A 51-year-old Valencia man was granted bail when he appeared in court charged with one count of sexual penetration of a minor.

    The victim told her mother that in March 2019, she was sexually assaulted by a man.

    A report was made and an investigation launched by officers of the Eastern Division Child Protection Unit.

    The man subsequently turned himself in to Sangre Grande Police on February 19th, 2021.

    He appeared that very day before a Sangre Grande Magistrate and was granted bail in the sum of $100,000 ($20,000 cash bail and $80,000 bail with a surety) and ordered to stay away from the victim.
