A 32-year-old man was ordered to have no contact with a 16-year-old girl after appearing before a Couva Magistrate today.
The accused, who resides in Bank Village, Carapichaima, appeared before the court charged with one count of sexual penetration of a child.
The order was made by Magistrate Christine Charles as part of his bail conditions which was set at $125,000.
The man will reappear before the court on July 9th.
He was arrested by WPC Hospedales, of the Central Division Child Protection Unit (CPU), on February 11th in connection with a report
made to police by a girl that a man took her to a house in Central
Trinidad where he allegedly sexually penetrated her.
Investigations, supervised by W/Insp Haynes, led to the charge being laid against the suspect.
