Man Accused Of Sex Attack On Tourist


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court yesterday afternoon in connection with a complaint filed by an American tourist who alleged that she was sexually assaulted by an acquaintance.

Vernal Stubbs, 20, of Sunshine Park, stood before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt facing a single charge of rape.

It is claimed that he had sexual intercourse with a 19-year-old American woman without her consent on January 30.

Stubbs will not be required to enter a plea to the allegations until he is formally arraigned in the Supreme Court.

The matter is expected to be transferred to the higher court at a hearing fixed for March 23.

Stubbs was remanded to the Department of Correctional Services in the interim without bail. However, he can apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

He has retained Allen Emmanuel to represent him against the allegation.

Hope this is just another Bill Cosby copy cat. Get the charges out there and do the damage but no prosecution will take place... Just saying

The young Bahamians have the idea that they can rape a tourist and get away with it. They think with their Prick instead of their Head.I know because I have lived there .They don't take No for an answer. Once they understand that rape is rape and sex without consent is a crime and they will go to jail.The white women who visit Nassau go there to visit and have fun and not to be raped by some Black spook who thinks he can get away with it like he can with local women.Too much Conch and too much freedom.
