The accused is Constable Constantine Ward, who was charged following a ruling by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Constable Ward appeared in the St Andrew Parish Court on Monday afternoon, and was offered bail in the sum of $350,000.

The allegations were that Ward, who is a student at the University of Technology (UTECH), was on a school retreat in Montego Bay last year when he allegedly sexually assaulted a fellow student.

He has denied the allegations.

He is scheduled to return to court next month.
