Stephens extradited to Cayman Islands
Ato Modibo Stephens has been extradited from the United States to the Cayman Islands to face allegations of sexual abuse during the time he worked as a coach there.
The 37-year-old Olympic athlete, who is married to Caymans track star Cydonie Mothersill, is charged with indecent assault and gross indecency involving a minor.
Stephens arrived in Grand Cayman on Monday night following successful extradition from the US, where he has citizenship. On Tuesday morning he was remanded in custody until Friday by the Summary Court.
Stephens is alleged to have indecently assaulted a teenager, but left the jurisdiction some 12 months ago after the young girl made the report and well before the charges were laid by police in June, 2016.
