ST ANN, Jamaica — The male St Ann teacher, who was slapped with charges relating to the molestation of a 15-year-old male student has been granted bail in the sum of $400,000.
The 24-year-old educator, who has been charged with one count each of buggery, indecent assault and grievous sexual assault, appeared in the St Ann Parish Court on Monday.
The presiding judge also ordered him to report to the police station once per week, and he should not visit Ocho Rios.
Failure to adhere to those conditions will result in the bond being revoked, the judge warned.
The case will again be mentioned later this month.
Allegations are that the teacher got involved in a relationship with a 15-year-old male student at the school.
Information reaching OBSERVER ONLINE, too, was that another minor, the male student, and the male teacher, met up in a hotel room in Ocho Rios and indulged in a ménage-a-trois.
A parent of one of the male students suspected what transpired and made a report to the police.
The teacher was arrested earlier this month and taken into custody following complaints by the student.
The teacher was subsequently charged.
The court was told on Thursday that a probe is ongoing to determine whether other charges are to be laid against the educator regarding the molestation of another student.
The defence attorney for the teacher said last week that a possible "conspiracy between students and teachers" at the school resulted in the male teacher being slapped with charges.
