Man facing sex charge to stand trial in Supreme Court
A man accused of having sex with a 16-year-old girl will stand trial in the Supreme Court, a magistrate ruled yesterday.
Prosecutors allege that Covin Bastian, 28, of Australia Avenue, Elizabeth Estates, had sex with the girl at home in Redland Acres on November 21, 2009.
Magistrate Derence Rolle Davis held a preliminary inquiry into the allegation against Bastian and he concluded that there was enough evidence for Bastian to stand trial.
Sergeant Godfrey Brennen was the prosecutor.
