MAGISTRATE Ann McLennan, on Thursday, December 12, 2019, remanded a 20-year-old farmer to prison for raping an 11-year-old girl.

Vladimir Lawrence of Yupukari Village, Rupununi, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and was not required to plead to the indictable charge.

It is alleged that, between December 4, 2019, and December 6, 2019, at Yupukari Village, Rupununi, he engaged in sexual activity with a child under the age of sixteen.

According to information provided, the virtual complainant and Lawrence were known to each other since they both lived in the same village. The virtual complainant was riding her bicycle, on her way home from school, when Lawrence stopped her and asked for sex. She refused. Lawrence then pulled her off her bicycle, dragged her into nearby bush, ripped off her clothes and raped her.

Lawrence later placed her on her bicycle. While on the way home her father saw them and questioned her and she said Lawrence raped her. The matter was reported to the Lethem Police Station and Lawrence was arrested and charged.

Lawrence was remanded to prison. The matter was adjourned until December 17, 2019, at the Lethem Magistrates’ Court.
