An 18-year-old accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl has been remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison, Dodds, St Philip and will return to court next month.
He is Tristan Nathaniel Leacock, of Flint Hall, Welches, St Michael, who appeared before acting Magistrate Anika Jackson in the District ‘A Magistrates’ Court.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charge of having sex between November 1 and 30, last year with the teen.
Prosecutor, PC Kenmore Phillips in asking the court not to grant bail, noted the nature and seriousness of the offence. Defence counsel Lennox Miller however spoke of Leacock’s previously clean record, adding that he was not a danger to anyone.
