Police officer granted $30,000.00 bail on three sex-related charges

A police officer, arrested and charged on a complaint of sex-related allegations is now on $30,000.00 bail following his appearance in court.

The accused appeared before the Roseau Magistrate court on May 16, 2022, charged with three sex-related offenses against a young adult woman. The charges were read to him but he was not required to enter a plea since the matter is an indictable offense that is expected to be tried in the High Court of Justice before a Judge and jury.

At the court hearing, his attorneys David Bruney and Wayne Norde, made a bail application which was granted by Magistrate Michael Laudat in the sum of $30,000.00 with certain bail conditions attached.

The accused is to report to the Roseau Police Station twice weekly and must surrender all his travel documents to the court. His bail condition further requires him to seek permission from the court 72 hours in advance, if he is to travel. He has also been ordered not to interfere with any of the witnesses in the case.

The matter has been adjourned to September 20, 2022, for Preliminary Inquiry (PI) to determine if there is enough evidence for it to be tried at the High Court.

In keeping with the section 38 of Dominica’s Sexual Offences Act of 1998, DNO is not at liberty to disclose the name of the accused unless he is convicted at the High Court of Justice for the alleged offense.

The relevant legislation is posted` below.

    Once this guy is found guilty he becomes a prime candidate for the “Cat-O-Nine” why are we afraid to bring back and administer the punishments that fit the crimes in Dominica. Is it because the real criminals are those in high places Mr AG.

    Unlawful sexual intercourse without the consent of a person is rape.If you ask a woman for sex,she say no and you take is rape,whether it is girlfriend or wife.The slightest proof of penetration,vagina,anus,or mouth is rape.If IBO France put his pastor rod in Bwa,Banday mouth without Bwa Banday convent is rape.Very simple

    The police who went to Massacre for information about this guy behavior and the recommend him to CID should be disciplined.The officer who received the report about the guy and did not carry out further investigations should be disciplined.The officer who interviewed the guy and recommended him for training should be deciplined.The officer who administered the oath to the guy should be dicilpined.The Chief Instructor should be disciplined.The guy should never have been a police.The is always dressed like a gangster and drug dealer,big gold chain,big gold watch,big gold bracelet and a pistol exposed in public for everybody to see,as if he is the only police with a gun.The commissioner who gave him a private firearm license should be demoted.How could all those police officers not see the man is a crook,traitor and vagabond.Now he is charged with 3 counts of a sexual offence which carries a consecutive sentence of 30 years.The Magistrate bailed him in the sum of $30,000.WICKED.

    “The accused appeared before the Roseau Magistrate court on May 16, 2022, charged with three sex-related offenses against a young adult woman.”

    I was under the impression the victim was under age the way people were carrying on on Facebook.

    NOW before any of you fault-free folks come for me, I thought the child was like in her young teens. Also I’m not saying he isn’t at fault for being pervy (and yes it goes for both sexes. Once you want to go behind people that can be your child or grand child, I consider you pervy).

    I heard the “child” wanted her ting but whosoever found out so she change her tune.

    so under, “…section 38 of Dominica’s Sexual Offences Act of 1998, DNO is not at liberty to disclose the name of the accused..” DNO is not at liberty to disclose WHAT the ‘three sex-related’ charges are either? And how comes when the news first broke it was a minor and now, all of a sudden, she’s a ‘young adult woman’?……To me, like ALL the other police offers that have been charged with similar offences in the past, this one “ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE”

      It can’t and will not go ANYWHERE this time for good reasons.
      The man did NOT rape this young lady. I pray god she finds it in her heart to ask forgiveness and move on from the gwo-pwell she is suffering from. I wish her name could be published so other men will take note and run away from her as far as they can. Fire burn wicked ones.

    Do you want to hear a joke??? 😂😂😂 This police officer is still allowed to “travel “ if he give the “authorities” 72 hours notice. He is a free man. Unless he chooses to return to Dominica. I still laughing, ehh 😂😂 and they saying Dominica doe have law! Tell that to this sex offender police offsexher.

    Its always sad when a law enforcer finds himself on the other. Its even worse when the accused is innocent but some officer rushes to arrest him simply to appease public perception. The young lady accusing the officer knows full well the accusations are false because she is his girlfriend and only did this because the man has another woman. I always hear my mother say that a woman scorned in a very dangerous weapon. Now you have put a stain on the man’s record now what? Even the arresting officer should be ashamed of himself. I have no place in my heart for a rapist but when a man is wronged we should all call it out. And by the way I have never met the officer but have insight into what happened and it is wrong. SMMFH

    DNO you are being deliberately deceptive. You are reporting that the offense was against a young adult woman. In that case there is no protection from identification. The protection from identification only applies to minors. You are deliberately misleading the public with your conveniently cropped image of the “relavant legislation”. It seems that you are only withholding the name because you were paid to do so or you are some how invested in not publishing the name. I dare you to allow my comment to be posted but I know you can’t allow that…

    ADMIN: Your comment is completely false. The act does not only apply to minors.

    I heard through the grapevine that he was provided with a mattress while arrested. Here is the irony. Dr. Thomson Fontaine did no such crime and was put in an unsanitary holding cell to sleep on filthy, bare concrete as his bed and pillow. WICKEDNESS!

    God is watching and one day vengeance is going to be His. Karma is real.

    It pains me to refer to the law enforcement authorities as a Police Force. What operates in Dominica as a Police Force is a loose concoction of thugs, gangsters and hardened criminals.

    They have beaten old women; teargassed peaceful women and children; murdered people in their custody; stormed a live parliamentary session with guns drawn; kidnapped Danny Lugay from his vehicle; have been accused of involvement in the international kidnapping of an Antiguan citizen (Choski).

    Too many of our adolescent girls and young women are being sexually molested and raped. The court is much too lenient in granting bail and handing down sentences. No wonder the fairer sex continues to be targeted by these perverts and miscreants. Enough is enough. Where is the deterrent?

    So DNO because is a police officer this accused who was charged has no name and picture. What a load of bs reporting. Come on man. He was charged.. publish his name and picture. He is a disgrace.. violating children…

    ADMIN: That is incorrect.

    In order to protect the victim the name of the accused is often withheld by law or based on the advice of the court.

    The reason being that the victim can often be identified by being associated with the accused.
