Experimental stage or what?

Teen accused of molesting 11-y-o

Police have confirmed that a woman and her son have moved out of a community after the boy was alleged molested by a teen.

Police have also confirmed that they have taken the teen into custody for molesting the woman’s 11 year-old son. The incident reportedly occurred in St Catherine recently.

The 15-year-old boy was set upon by residents before he was taken into custody. He was accused of sexually molesting the boy.

Police reports are that about 2 p.m., they responded to a call and was just in time to rescue the teenager from an angry mob.

He was placed into custody as a juvenile in need of care and protection.

The Old Harbour police said that the juvenile is scheduled to face the Children’s Court in St Catherine on April 24.

There was no word about the whereabouts of the mother and her 11-year-old son.

The police told the Star that acts of sexual impropriety among teenagers in the parish is uncomfortably high among juveniles.

To this end, they said that more intervention from support groups is needed at this time to address the issue.

One thought on “Experimental stage or what?”

  1. Both are minors in the eyes of the law. More pertinent to the case, what was the nature of the alleged molestation? It may have been simple experimentation, or it may have been an act of aggression. In either case the reaction of the residents is simply WRONG. Mob violence cannot be condoned, not against an adult and especially not against a child. Were any of the adults involved in the attack on the 15 year old taken into police custody? Had the police not arrived and taken the adolescent into custody, what would his fate have been?I think as Jamaicans we are so mortified by issues of sex and sexuality, that we fail to see the real moral issues at stake in the society… and in this case, it is the mob attack on a minor which needs to be urgently addressed (Or have we all become so barbaric and ignorant that we fail to see this as the crime?)
