(CNS): A 15-year-old boy appeared before Justice Michael Mettyear in Grand Court Friday facing charges of robbery and common assault for stealing just over five dollars. The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, denied robbing his victim on Watlers Drive in George Town earlier this year and pleaded not guilty to both counts, with the assistance of his attorney John Furniss. The teenage boy is alleged to have robbed a man of CI$5.48 along with a group of others on 20 February this year. The young defendant is expected to stand trial with his alleged co-conspirators in January of next year.
