| 02/09/2014

(CNS): A West Bay man currently incarcerated at HMP Northward has denied attacking a fellow inmate who is serving a life sentence for rape. Ryan Ebanks (35) pleaded not guilty via video link from the prison on Friday morning to GBH with intent. The prisoner denied assaulting Jeffery Barnes (33) at the country’s jail in July last year. No details of the alleged attack were revealed but Ebanks will now stand trial next February. His alleged victim was sentenced to life in prison following two separate rape convictions last year. Barnes was found guilty of raping one woman at knife point in her bed and another in the back of his car after abducting her from a bus stop.
