A TEENAGER’S 57-year-old school driver is charged for alleged sexual assault over a three-year-period.
Police reported on Tuesday that he was ordered by a Port-of-Spain Magistrate to have no contact with the 16-year-old girl.
The man, of Coconut Drive, Morvant, was given the order by Magistrate Indar Jagroo as part of his bail conditions which was set at $250,000.
He was also ordered to report to the Morvant Police Station bi-weekly.
He will reappear before the court again on February 2.
The accused was charged with: five counts of sexual penetration, three counts of sexual grooming and one count of exposing a child to pornographic material.
Police stated that the perpetrator was arrested on January 20 and charged on January 22 by WPC Ashby, of the North-Eastern Division Child Protection Unit (CPU).
This followed an investigation into a report to police by the victim that she was allegedly subjected to several acts of sexual abuse during the period November 2017 and January 2020.
Investigations revealed that the alleged acts occurred while the girl was a passenger of a vehicle driven by the accused and while at his home. The investigation was headed by acting Supt Claire Guy-Alleyne, acting ASP Roberts and supervised by acting Inspector Davidson.
