Bail extended for PNP councillor and businessman
Bail extensions were granted for a People's National Party (PNP) Councillor and a prominent businessman when they appeared in the Morant Bay Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Both men, who are charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice, had their $600,000 bail extended.
Allegations are that representative for the Morant Bay Division, Councillor Rohan Bryan and Ludlow McWhinney, an owner and operator of several businesses, made attempts to prevent a minor and her family from moving forward with a case against a pastor.
The pastor, Byron Graham of Prospect in the parish, is said to have taken the minor to his home in 2012 with the promise of a family meal, but forced her to have sexual intercourse with him instead.
Graham was taken into custody in July 2014 and charged with rape, sexual touching, and sex with a minor.
Graham is currently on bail.
Bryan and McWhinney will have their case mentioned again on April 27.
