Mother stops man just before alleged intercourse with minor

A Nottingham Estate man was granted $40,000 bail in relation to allegations that the mother of an underaged girl stopped him just as he was about to have sexual intercourse with the minor.

Twenty-three-year-old BVI native Joshua Clarence received bail after pleading not guilty to indecent assault before Magistrate Shawn Innocent on Friday.

The alleged incident occurred back in 2016 when the girl was in secondary school, the court heard.

The court heard that the minor and Clarence met on the eastern end of Tortola and began subsequent communications via Facebook and other avenues.

Around midday on June 19 that year, the two allegedly met in a parking lot before heading to Clarence’s home located in the area.

While at the house, the man and the child allegedly got undressed and began kissing and fondling.

It is further alleged that just as Clarence was about to insert himself into the girl, the minor’s mother came to the house and interrupted them.

The minor was subsequently taken away and medically examined, it is alleged.

A report was made to the East End police and Clarence was arrested and charged.

Following defence attorney Stephen Daniels’ successful bail application for his client, Clarence was ordered to stay away from the young lady in question or any other witnesses.

He is also to report to the East End Police Station on Mondays and Fridays between 6 am and 6 pm.

The court also ordered Clarence to surrender his travel documents to police.

He is scheduled to return to court on November 12.

    I guess it’s all business! Why would a lawyer defend a pig? I guess money is money. On a 2nd note this is happening to often and not enough know public figures, community people are talking about the issues that’s bordering our community. If we aint the solution the were the problem. I’m challenging more of our sports and band members to get more involved with our community. Sports and band members have a large wide reach of people especially young people and believe they should get involved Ns use the platform for Social good.

    “as Clarence was about to insert himself into the girl” …it seem to me that no crime was committed there as no penetration took place. Stephen D is going to bag that one as a win!!!

      sexual contact with a minor…STILL A CRIME. There doesn’t need to be penetration. Your ignorance of the situation is disgraceful. You CANNOT TOUCH A MINOR INNAPROPRIATELY EVEN FOR A SECOND WITHOUT IT BEING A CRIME WORTHY OF A LONG TIME IN JAIL.
