Man Charged With Unlawful Carnal Knowledge

February 9, 2011

A 20-year-old man today [Feb 9], faced indictable charges in Magistrates Court involving unlawful carnal knowledge of a girl under 14.

One offence of unlawful carnal knowledge was said to have occurred in St George’s on 27th August 2010; the other on a date between 22 – 31 August 2010.

The man, who we cannot name nor depict for legal reasons, was also charged with using a part of his body to touch the body of a girls under the age of fourteen, and this offence is also alleged to have been committed in August 2010.

Because the charges can only be tried in Supreme Court, he was not required to plead.

Already in custody on other matters, the matter was adjourned to 23 February 2011, and he remains in custody to face trial on these new matters.

    I do not understand why names are withheld for “Legal reasons”. These people are sexual predators and should be named for Public protection. A sexual offenders register should be created so we can all be aware and have the ability to protect ourselves and our children. This is a 14 year old child. I don’t care what the excuses are. THIS IS A CHILD!

      This situation caught my attention as well… You protect one child to expose the predator to all the other kids. Common sense is really not so common!

      • Not Surprised says:

        They should protect the child by not naming the victim, but the offender should be exposed for what he/she is!

  2. Truth be told... says:

    Innocent until proven guilty, if he is found guilty, his name will be released. Being charged with such an act, even if found innocent can have detrimental consequences for that persons ‘name’, hence it is withdrawn until there is a verdict.

    But, yes, there should be a sexual offenders register for those found guilty of such crimes.

    • Boss Lady says:

      Truth be told I am with you… I don’t think a name should be given until proven guilty.

      Nothing ever changes because we as a people don’t demand it. This is why we will have a continual problem with this sort of thing. I’m happy to see more people pressing charges and coming forward tho.
