A TRIAL date has been set for a former police officer charged with the production of child pornography.

Edmund Lewis Jr, who appeared before Magistrate Andrew Forbes yesterday for a fixture hearing, is to return to Magistrates Court on September 14 for the expected start of his trial.

Lewis, 28, is alleged to have produced child pornography videos between July 2014 and January 21, 2015.

The former constable was first arraigned on January 23 and denied bail. He was dismissed from the Royal Bahamas Police Force shortly after charges were filed against him.

He elected to be tried in the Magistrate’s Court and was granted $5,000 bail days after being re-arraigned due to an “inadvertent error” at his first court appearance where he should have been given the option to be tried in either the Magistrate’s Court or Supreme Court and enter a plea to the charges.

Lewis is represented by Wayne Munroe, QC, and Ryszard Humes, who both appeared in court for him yesterday.
