Teen charged with statutory rape

A man was on Tuesday charged with statutory rape.

Barely an adult himself at 18, Robert Pennerman is accused of having unlawful sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl on January 1, 2020.

Pennerman, of Caspian Road, was not required to enter a plea to the charge when he made his initial appearance before Magistrate Jeanine Weech-Gomez.

Pennerman was denied bail and advised of his right to seek bail before a Supreme Court judge.

He returns to court on March 6 when the case will be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment.
