Teacher charged with sex offences

January 29, 2018

The Constabulary Communications Unit is reporting that an athletic coach from a St Catherine-based high school was arrested and charged by the detectives of the Spanish Town Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) last Monday.

He has been charged with abduction, indecent assault and rape of 16-year-old female student of the same institution.

Reports are that about 2 p.m. on December 13, 2017, the student was offered a ride to the bus stop by the coach after completing track and field training.

The accused reportedly drove past the child’s stop and on to a dirt track off the Spanish Town bypass, close to the El Prado Housing Scheme, where he sexually assaulted her.

The matter was reported to the police on December 19.

The coach is scheduled to appear before the St Catherine Parish Court tomorrow.
