CMC – A 49-year-old Grenadian man will re-appear in court on November 1, charged with 76 counts of sexually assaulting his two step daughters over a nine-year period.
Police said that Reynold Pierre was charged with 28 and 48 counts respectively of carnal knowledge.
He was not requested to plead since the charges have been laid indictably when he appeared in court on Thursday.
Pierre has been released on EC$10,000 bail. The two children have since been removed from the home.
In July, parliament approved an amendment to the Criminal Code, which provides for a maximum of 30 years imprisonment for anyone convicted of sex offences.
