Radio Personality Jason Skeete has been charged by police with three counts of indecent assault, and one count of indecent exposure.
Skeete who worked in some of the leading media houses in the country as a radio broadcaster is accused of making several sexual advances to a female secretary who resides at Grand Anse, St. George’s.
A high level source informed THE NEW TODAY newspaper that the suspect allegedly committed a series of offenses against the 22-year old young lady over a period of time.
The lawmen got into action after receiving a complaint from the young lady that after refusing to enter into a personal relationship with Skeete the situation got out of hand.
The source who spoke on condition of not being identified said it took police officers who are attached to the South St. George Police Station almost three weeks of intense investigation before they moved in to apprehend the radio personality.
According to the source, the allegation made against the 39-year old Skeete is that he first exposed himself to the Secretary before proceeding to touch her on several parts of her body including her breast, vagina and buttocks.
Skeete who had a stint with a leading FM radio station in neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago served with several radio stations including the Grenada Broadcasting Network (GBN).
The Mt. Parnassus, St. George’s resident currently operates his own advertising company.
In the 1999 general elections, Skeete was associated with the then ruling New National Party (NNP) government of former Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell as a member of its media team.
He is the second media personality to have been charged by the police in recent months on sex-related offenses.
Almost one year ago, broadcaster Allan Campbell who hosted the NNP-sponsored radio Programme, “Hard Talk” was charged with two counts of indecently assaulting his step-children.
The case against Campbell is yet to get started at the Grenville Magistrate’s Court in St. Andrew’s.
