A 29-year-old Epworth man was yesterday dragged to court to answer to charges of having se_xual intercourse with a minor after he reportedly slept with his teenage girlfriend.
The suspect White Jack, was not asked to plead when he appeared before Harare magistrate Judith Taruvinga.
Allegations are that Jack proposed love to the 15 year old girl who is currently in form two in March and she accepted his proposal.
The two reportedly started dating and seeing each other occasionally.
The court heard that on one occasion, the two met along Delport Road and they drove to Muza area and parked in a bushy area and while they were there, Jack caressed the minor and removed her clothes before having se_xual intercourse with her.
From then, the two started having se_xual intercourse on different occasions.
On June 14, Jack called the minor on her cell phone intending to talk to her but the phone was answered by her mother who then quizzed her daughter about Jack prompting her to confess about her relationship with Jack and that they had had se_xual intercourse on several occasions.
Jack was arrested subsequently after the confession.
Lancelot Mutsokoti appeared for the State.
