A medical doctor was brought before the Mandeville Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, arising from allegations that he impregnated a 12-year-old girl three times.

The court was told that the pregnancies were aborted.

Charged with three counts of sexual assault is 38-year-old Mark Gray.

Gray was granted $200,000 bail with a surety following a bail application by attorney-at-law Hensley Williams.

The Crown is alleging that two of the pregnancies were aborted by the accused while the third was aborted by medical personnel at a hospital when the girl was five months pregnant.

It is further alleged that the offences took place in 2014 and 2015.

The girl was 12 years old at the time of the alleged incidents.

Williams, in making the bail application, said that there was no forensic evidence or witness to support the allegations.

The attorney argued that the teen suffered from a mental condition and that his client denied the allegations.

Gray is to return to court on May 4 when the case will be mentioned.
