A MAN was remanded to prison yesterday in connection with the sexual assault of a woman that took place last week.
Philip Rolle, 24, stood before Senior Magistrate Derence A Rolle Davis on a charge of rape.
It is alleged that on January 11 in New Providence, Rolle had sex with a 28-year-old woman without her consent.
In court, Rolle was not required to enter a plea as it was an indictable offence. He was informed that his matter would proceed to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment (VBI).
The accused was further told that although the magistrate lacked the jurisdiction to grant him bail he had a right to apply for it through the higher court. He is expected to receive his VBI in March.
