An Imani trainee who resides at Fontenoy, St. George’s is facing a charge of sexual intercourse with a minor.
Jumal Francis, 21, is accused of having sexual intercourse with a young lady from the same village whom he claims to be his girlfriend.
THE NEW TODAY understands that the victim is 13-years old.
A well-informed source told THE NEW TODAY that the mother of the young girl was the one who reported the matter to the police. The accused allegedly had sex with the under-aged girl when she visited him at his home.
According to the source, the incident took place in November 2014, but was reported one year later. However, the Police only moved in on Francis over the last weekend to lay the charge of sexual intercourse on him.
He was taken into custody and granted bail in the sum of $10, 000.00. Attorney-at-law, Peter David has been retained to represent Francis.
