Rasbert Turner, Gleaner Writer
A man who absconded bail two years ago was remanded when he appeared in court this morning.
He is 40-year-old Cyrel Francis from Old Harbour in St Catherine.
The court heard that in 2011, Francis who was charged with having sexual intercourse with a person under age sixteen, was told to call the person who was acting as his surety.
He reportedly went outside the court and fled.
A bench warrant was issued for his arrest.
He was picked up by the police last week and taken before the court.
He is scheduled to return to court on Friday.
