By BBN Staff: Ladyville resident, Adam Meighan, has been accused of the rape of a forty-nine-year-old American woman.
Yesterday he had his day in court to respond to the allegations against him.
However, because of the nature of his crime, no plea was taken and Magistrate Albert Hoare remanded him to prison until February 12, 2019.
Last Thursday, the victim had reported that she exited her home and was about to enter her truck when she was allegedly accosted by Meighan.
Armed with a rusty machete, Meighan allegedly raped her and then made off with $8,200 in cash that was inside an envelope in her vehicle.
