A 20-year-old man accused of having sex with a minor was denied bail on Thursday.
Darron Eric Mackey, of Sandilands Village Road, appeared before Magistrate Kara Turnquest-Deveaux on a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse.
He’s accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl on September 12.
Mackey won’t enter a plea to the charge until he appears in the Supreme Court.
Prosecutors plan to send the matter to the Supreme Court by way of a voluntary bill of indictment on December 4. Mackey was remanded to The Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.
However, he has the right to seek bail in the Supreme Court.
