A 27-year-old man accused of illicit sexual relations with a 13-year-old girl last summer was remanded yesterday.
Keyvon Mackey stood before Assistant Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain on three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.
It is alleged that between June 1 and 17 in New Providence that Mackey had sexual relations with a female minor on three occasions.
As these charges are indictable offences the accused was not required to enter a plea. Mackey was informed that his case would proceed to the Supreme Court by way of a Voluntary Bill of Indictment (VBI), service of which is set for May 25.
The accused was further told that while the magistrate lacked the jurisdiction to grant him bail he had the right to apply for it in the higher court.
Until bail is granted, the accused will be sent to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
