A MAN accused of having sex with his mother refused to sign his record of interview in police custody after denying the accusation, a jury heard yesterday.

Corporal Dale Clarke took the witness stand about January 11, 2012 when he sat in on the interview of a man brought in for questioning concerning allegations that he had had sex with his mother.

Officer Clarke, when questioned by prosecutor Kendra Kelly, said the man was asked a series of questions which he answered, but refused to sign the record of the interview form.

The policeman, who identified the man seated in the prisoner’s dock as the person interviewed by one of his colleagues, said that the accused denied the allegation.

The accused, whose identity cannot be published for the protection of the complainant’s identity, is accused of committing the crime in their New Providence home on January 10, 2012 when he is accused of forcing himself on his mother.

The complainant has yet to take the witness stand. Justice Indra Charles is presiding over the trial.
