People’s National Party Councillor for the Morant Bay Division, Rohan Bryan, and businessman Ludlow McWhinney, were yesterday granted extensions to their bail when they appeared in court.The men appeared in the Morant Bay Resident Magistrate's Court in St Thomas, where a June 16 return date was set.

They are charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice and are each out on $600,000 bail.

They are accused of attempting 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 alleged 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.
