Minibus driver to face Judge, jury over rape of 14-year-old girl

After being charged in October of 2018 for the rape of a 14-year-old schoolgirl, 41-year-old minibus operator Sherwayne Brant, also known as “Brave”, was on Monday committed to stand in the High Court by Georgetown Magistrate Faith McGusty.
Magistrate McGusty, in handing down her ruling, said that a prima facie case has been made out against Brant.
The minibus driver was charged for engaging in sexual penetration with a child under the age of 16 at Plum Park, Sophia, Greater Georgetown, on October 7, 2015.
During the Preliminary Inquiry, the prosecution had contended that the teen was a regular passenger in the minibus the accused operated. According to the prosecution, on October 7, 2015, the teen was the lone traveller in the bus when Brant drove the bus to Plum Park, where he committed the act. The teen later told her parents about the incident and a report was made to Police.
