A 51-year-old school driver was granted $40,000 bail when he appeared before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate on Friday charged with one count of sexual touching of a child.
The man, who resides in Diamond Vale, Diego Martin, was arrested on January 20 and charged today by WPC Kerr of the Western Division Child Protection Unit (CPU).
The victim, a 13-year-old girl, told police that in January 2020, she was in a vehicle on her way to school when she was assaulted by her driver.
Investigations were spearheaded by acting W/Superintendent Claire Guy-Alleyne, acting ASP Roberts and Sgt James of the Child Protection Unit.
The accused will reappear when the matter comes up for hearing on February 18.
