Senior citizen gets three years on sex charge
A senior citizen who pleaded guilty to impregnating an underaged girl 10 years ago, was sentenced to three years imprisonment in the St Catherine Circuit Court on Friday.
He is Cecil Hall, 70, of Linstead in the parish.
Hall's problems began after he attended the Family Court in February for a maintenance hearing where he allegedly said he would not be paying anymore money to the mother of his 10-year-old child.
The child's mother then revealed to the court that he impregnated her when she was only 15.
An inquiry was made by the presiding parish judge and evidence confirmed the accused committed a case of carnal abuse.
The judge then instructed the police to take him in to custody and collected statements from the complainant.
An investigation by the police resulted in Hall being charged.
