Labourer On Child Molestation Charge – LABOURER Jaglal Bridgemohan appeared before the Rio Claro Court on Monday charged with sexually touching a 12-year-old-girl.

It is alleged the child’s private areas were touched between September 15 and 16, 2017.

Bridgemohan, 42, was charged last Sunday by Constable Hamilton of the Police Service Child Protection Unit. He appeared before Senior Magistrate Rae Roopchand and said he was not guilty of the offence.

Attorneys Subhas Panday and Krissy Jalim petitioned the court for bail for the construction worker, who has a clean criminal record.

Police prosecutor Sgt Mohammed made no objection to bail but asked that conditions be attached.

Roopchand placed Bridgemohan on $50,000 bail with a cash alternative of $16,000. Conditions of the bail included that no contact is to be made directly or indirectly with the alleged victim or her immediate family and he is to keep 100 feet away from her.
