The man is accused of engaging in sexual intercourse with a minor child on March 22, 2012. At the time of the incident the victim was eight years old.
The accused has chosen to defend himself in court.
Justice Francis Cumberbatch ensured that the defendant was aware of the implications of his plea as well as the implications of not availing himself of counsel.
The accused will prepare and file his defence statements with the assistance of a probation officer.
He will return to court April 21, 2013 for a trial date.
