A 41-year-old man appeared in court charged yesterday with the indecent assault of a five-year-old boy.
Prosecutors have accused Jose Thompson, of Caribbean Road, off Gladstone Road, of indecently assaulting the child during November.
Thompson was not required to enter a plea to the charge when he made his initial court appearance before Magistrate Ambrose Armbrister.
Thompson will face trial in the Supreme Court before a judge and jury.
Prosecutors plan to expedite the trial process with a voluntary bill of indictment that will be served on February 9, 2021.
Thompson was remanded to prison. However, he can apply for bail in the Supreme Court.
