A JUDGE issued a warrant of arrest for a man who failed to appear in court for his sexual assault case.

Senior Justice Stephen Isaacs made the order for Garvon Kelly, 32, to be apprehended at the request of prosecutor Stephanie Pintard following Kelly’s failure to appear in the Supreme Court on Tuesday for the status hearing into a trial on two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.

Kelly, who is on bail, is accused of having sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl on two occasions in January 2012.

A female under the age of 16 cannot give consent to have sexual intercourse.

Kelly was formally arraigned in the Supreme Court in January 2014 where he denied the allegation.
