A man who calls himself a prophet and a pastor was given bail this morning after pleading ‘not guilty’ to a charge of indecent assault.

Jason Providence of the popular Life by faith ministries appeared at the Family Court on the morning of June 23.

Represented by lawyer Kay Bacchus-Baptiste, Providence is said to have maintained innocence to the January 18 charge and was allowed bail.

He will return before the court on October 3.

His lawyer was contacted by SEARCHLIGHT shortly after her client’s court appearance. She submitted that her client has put forward that he was set up. Further, she said that he was in the process of filing a defamation suit when he was charged.

“I’m gonna do my best to do my job to defend him of this offence, which he says he’s absolutely not guilty of. He’s a very outstanding man in his community doing work for his church and for his God and so I intend to put my best foot forward in defending him,” she stated.

The prophet/pastor is known for a series that films the apparent casting out of demons. This is highlighted on the Facebook page of the Faith by life ministries where they garner hundreds of views and comments, many reflecting adulation for him.
