A St. George’s man is facing a maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment after being found guilty on a summary charge of Indecent Assault.
Andy Sampson was found guilty for committing a sex-offence, which was reportedly committed against a 6-year-old boy.
Sampson is scheduled to be brought back to court on July 10 for sentencing at the St. George’s No. 1 Magistrate’s Court before Chief Magistrate, Her Honour Tamara Gill.
THE NEW TODAY understands that the accused was last March, convicted in connection to an Indecent Assault incident, which was reportedly committed against the child, who was left in the care of Sampson’s female partner, sometime in 2016.
His sentencing date was set for last week Tuesday but could not take place due to the unavailability of certain key documents.
According to a well placed source, the Chief Magistrate is awaiting the results of some pertinent reports for consideration before handing down punishment to the convicted man for the commission of the offence.
It is understood that the Child Protection Authority (CPA) had intervened following the report of the incident to provide psycho-social support to the 6-year-old victim, who has since been placed in a safe environment.
The CPA is a non-profit organisation, which was established by the Child Protection and Adoption Act in 2010, which gives it the power to address all child protection matters within the tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
