Man accused of rape of teen boy

A Yamacraw Shores resident, who was allegedly caught in a compromising situation on a beach with a teenage boy, has been remanded to prison on an unlawful sex charge.

Paul Lewis, 37, appeared before Magistrate Ambrose Armbrister on a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse.

Prosecutors alleged that Lewis had sex with a boy of 14 last month.

Lewis was not required to enter a plea to the charge and the matter will be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court for trial.

Lewis returns to court in April to receive a voluntary bill of indictment.

Another man appeared in the same court accused of the statutory rape of a teenage girl.

Ashley Moss, 30, of Armbrister Street, is accused of two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.

Prosecutors say that Moss raped the 15-year-old girl in December 2017 and January 2018.

He did not have to enter pleas to the charges and was also remanded to prison.

However, both men have the right to seek bail in the Supreme Court.
