Cat Island man accused of indecent assault

A 58-year-old fisherman from Cat Island spent the weekend in prison after he was accused of indecent assault.

Nathaniel Gilbert, of Devil’s Point, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt on Friday, charged with the indecent assault of a 59-year-old woman on the island on April 17.

Prosecutors allege that Gilbert touched the woman’s breasts without her permission. Gilbert denied the allegation at his arraignment on Friday afternoon.

The prosecutor, Sergeant 3605 Samantha Miah, asked the court to defer the bail hearing to today as she was waiting on a report from the Criminal Records Office.

As a result, Gilbert was denied bail, pending a bail hearing.

Roger Minnis appeared for Gilbert.
