Trial ordered for volunteer teacher accused of sex with girls
A man who worked as a volunteer music teacher at the North Andros High School will stand trial for allegedly having sex with two female students four years ago.
Magistrate Derence Rolle-Davis ruled yesterday that prosecutors produced enough evidence to require Oswald Poitier to stand trial in the Supreme Court on two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.
Prosecutors allege that Poitier befriended two girls, ages 13 and 14, and had sex with them.
The alleged sexual act with the 14-year-old allegedly occurred in November and December of 2006 at Nicholl’s Town, Andros.
Poitier allegedly had sex with the 13-year-old girl at New Providence on December 22, 2006. Prosecutors claim he picked the girl up from a Pinewood Gardens home and took her to another home where they had sex.
Roger Minnis represented Poitier who is a former policeman at the preliminary hearing. Sergeant Godfrey Brennen was the prosecutor.
A security guard at Gambier Primary School is expected to appear before a magistrate tomorrow on two charges of indecent assault.
Police allege that the security guard indecently assaulted two eight-year-old girls at the school.
He was scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on Monday. However, Magistrate Ancella Evans-Williams postponed the arraignment until tomorrow.
