PROCEEDINGS have been discontinued against a man on trial for the alleged sexual assault against a minor.

Jason Moss, 23, faced a single charge of unlawful sexual intercourse stemming from an alleged incident with a girl under the age of 13 between November and December 2013.

However, prosecutor Darell Taylor presented a nolle prosequi signed by the attorney general asking that the charge be discontinued against him.

Glendon Rolle, lawyer for the accused, was also served with the document, as was Senior Justice Stephen Isaacs.

The Attorney General’s Office could bring the case against Moss again at any time in the Supreme Court, but it is unlikely.

Moss had denied the allegation since his formal arraignment in Supreme Court.

A person tried and conviction of unlawful sexual intercourse faces between seven years and life imprisonment.
