Father accused of incest

A man accused of having an incestuous relationship with his daughter was yesterday remanded to prison.

The 35-year-old man, whose name is being withheld to protect the identity of his teenage daughter, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt on multiple charges of incest and indecent assault.

Prosecutors allege that the man sexually assaulted his 14-year-old daughter in 2015 and 2016 and from January 2018 to June 2018.

The man is also accused of indecently assaulting his child from 2016 to 2018.

The man was not required to enter pleas to the charges and returns to court in January.

As the magistrate is unable to grant bail for the charges, he would have to seek bail in the Supreme Court.
