Man in court for giving alcohol to 13-year-old girl


    A 37-year-old Tobago man has been granted bail after appearing in court charged with one count of giving alcohol to a minor.

    The man was arrested and charged on October 12th following an investigation into a report that a 13-year-old girl was seen behaving in an uncontrollable manner.

    A medical examination confirmed that she was intoxicated.

    The accused appeared virtually before a Scarborough Magistrate yesterday, and was granted bail with a surety in the sum of $50,000 or a $5,000 cash bail alternative.

    The matter was then postponed to November 10th.
