Lab technician Albert Genity is out on bail after he appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano on Thursday, January 29, to answer to a single charge of sexual assault.

A woman reported to police that she visted the Matron Roberts Health Center on Friday, January 23, to get a lab report. While she was there she went into an office to see Genity and while conducting a test he touched her vagina in a sexual nature without her consent. The woman was offended and reported the matter to police. Genity was arrested and charged.

In court, Genity was represented by attorney Douglas Carr. He pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual assault. Court prosecutor, Cpl. Noel Muschamp objected to bail on the grounds that such crime is becoming more prevalent in society. Muschamp also rose the possibility of Genity trying to interfere with the virtual complainant once released. Magistrate Cayetano then asked Carr why should he grant his client bail. Carr said that his client is a laboratory technician and it is an isolated allegation. Carr also stated that his client is a father and takes care of his elderly mother. He told the Magistrate that the allegation against his client is baseless and has no merit.

With that said, Magistrate Cayetano offered bail in the sum of $5,000 plus one surety of the same amount. The case was adjourned for April 1, 2015.
