A 40-year-old conductor charged with a number of indecent assault offences will spend the next 28 days in prison on remand.
Terry Emmerson Dellimore, of Browne’s Gap, Sargeants, Christ Church, is alleged to have indecently assaulted an 11-year-old girl on November 11, 2017, and trespassing into her family’s home on the same day with intent to commit indecent assault.
He was not required to enter a plea to those offences and will appear in the Oistins Magistrate’s Court on September 25 to answer those two charges.
It is further alleged that he unlawfully assaulted a woman on September 18. He pleaded not guilty to that charge but was not required to plead to the indictable charge that he willfully did an indecent act – masturbated in a Christ Church pharmacy – with intent to offend a woman on August 28.
Sergeant Rudy Pilgrim objected to bail based on the nature and seriousness of the offences and the fact that the charges spread across different jurisdictions. The prosecutor also said that the accused was also presently on bail for a similar offence and feared that if granted bail he would re-offend.
He further submitted that Dellimore was known to the court for committing home invasions especially burglaries.
In taking a look at the accused’s conviction card Magistrate Douglas Frederick said: “your history is not a good one at all although a man should not be judged by his history”.
However, in his application for bail Dellimore told the magistrate he was not a flight risk as he did not have a passport; he always attended court on his appointed dates and could report to a police station to allay the prosecutor’s fear.
“I am innocent until proven guilty,” he added.
Despite those submissions, the magistrate ruled in the prosecution’s favour and remanded Dellimore to HMP Dodds until October 22.
