Man charged with child porn granted bail

A judge on Thursday ordered a radiologist charged with procuration and possession of child pornography freed on $15,000 bail.

Dr. Zephrick Newbold, 36, of Malcolm Road West, was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services on January 13 when he made his first court appearance.

Prosecutors allege that Newbold procured a 15-year-old boy for the purpose of having sex in January. He was allegedly found with a picture of the same child’s penis on the same date.

Under the terms of his bail, Justice Guillimina Archer-Minns ordered that Newbold have no contact with the child or any other witness in the case.

Newbold was represented by Ian Cargill at the bail application, which was not opposed by the prosecution.

Newbold makes his next court appearance on March 10 to receive a voluntary bill of indictment that will fast-track his case to the Supreme Court.
