Belmont Resident on 19 Counts of Sex Related Offences

A forty-three year-old Belmont resident slapped with nineteen counts of sex related offenses has been denied bail.

Accused Earnest Blackman, a mechanic by profession, slapped with nineteen counts of indecent assault following his arrest last week, had his freedom curtailed as chief Magistrate Tamara Gill presiding at the St George’s Number One Magistrate Court, turned down an application for bail made on his behalf by defense counsel Peter David.

According to information reaching the Grenada Informer, the allegation leveled against Blackman dated back to the years 2014/15 and 16 and involved young children well known him.  

All nineteen counts for which Blackman appeared before the court are indictable, and would entail a preliminary inquiry to determine the strength of the evidence with a view of a trial at the High Court.    

Having been remanded to the Richmond Hill Prisons, Blackman is expected to make his second court appearance on April 18th. If convicted on all nineteen counts, he faces a maximum of ninety-five years behind bars.
