July 02, 2016

A 50-year-old St Catherine man, who sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl three years ago, was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment in the St Catherine Circuit Court on Thursday.

He is Brian Wilby of Portmore, St Catherine.

Wilby was sentenced by Justice Vinette Graham-Allen after he was convicted by a jury last month.

He was sentenced to 15 years for having sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 14 years old. He was also given five years for sexual touching.

The sentences are to run concurrently, therefore he will only serve 15 years.

The Crown led evidence that the accused sexually molested the child more than once.

It was subsequently reported to the police, and following an investigation he was charged.
