KINGSTON, Jamaica - Twenty-seven-year-old Ronald Oates, the man allegedly behind the "Jamaican girls exposed" website was this morning remanded in custody when he appeared before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.

He is to return to court on September 18.

Oates’ lawyer, Zara Lewis, made a bail application on his behalf, however, the judge granted an additional two weeks for the investigator to complete his work.

As a result, the lawyer will have to renew the bail application.

Oates was arrested last week for posting nude photos of women on the internet and is accused of extorting over $100,000 from victims to remove the pictures.
