A 66-year-old British man has pleaded guilty to
indecently assaulting a nine-year-old boy in April
while on vacation in Trinidad.
Derek Ide, a retired financial services adviser from
England, will have to wait until December 13 to be
sentenced. He admitted to committing the sexual
offence when he reappeared in the Port-of-Spain
Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
When he initially appeared in court on May 1, Ide
was charged with grievous sexual assault of the child
under Section 4 of the Sexual Offences Act. He was
denied bail and has remained in remand since then.
Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)
George Busby was assigned to prosecute and began
paper commital proceedings against Ide who was not
called upon to plea to the charge as it was laid indictably.
During previous hearings, witness statements were
entered into evidence and the victim testified.
Ide is alleged to have assaulted the child at a boatyard
in Chaguaramas on April 28. Cpl Marvin Gibbons of
the Carenage Police Station investigated and charged
Ide.When the case was called this week, Busby said
the State wished to amend the charge to one of serious
indecency under Section 16 of the act. The offence
carries a maximum sentence of ten years imprison-
Busby s application was not opposed by Ide s lawyer,
Sean Cazabon, and was accepted by Magistrate Mau-
reen Baboolal-Gafoor, who is presiding over the case
in the Seventh Court.
Ide was then given an opportunity to choose whether
he wanted the case to be heard before a judge and
jury in the High Court or before Baboolal-Gafoor and
chose the latter and admitted to the crime.
Cazabon will present Ide s mitigation plea and Busby
will respond during the next hearing before Baboolal-
Gafoor passes sentence.

cer, of Western Main Road, Carenage, was
not called on to plea to the indictable charges

tine Charles in the Port-of-Spain First Court
