Kaieteur News – November 15, 2007

Boxing coach George Oprecht, also know as ‘Canchie’ yesterday appeared before Magistrate Oneidge Waldron-Allicock at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court for the charge of rape.

According to the particulars of the charge, on November 11, Oprecht committed the offence on a 20-year-old female at Independence Boulevard in Albouystown.

He was not required to plead to the indictable charge.

In making a bail application for himself, given that he was unrepresented, Oprecht told the magistrate that he trained former world champion Andrew ‘Six Head’ Lewis.

His bail application was refused and he was remanded to prison until December 3.

Kaieteur News understands that on the day in question the female victim who lives in the same house with the accused came home at about 01:00hr and retired to bed.

It is alleged that shortly after Oprecht held a knife to the woman’s neck and forced her to have sex with him.
