SON'S LOVE FOR MEN SHOCKS MOM - Mother discovers 14-y-o's Facebook posts
SHELDON WILLIAMS, STAFF REPORTER

A mother is now seeking professional help for her 14-year-old son after he made a stunning revelation to her that he was molested by a businessman some years ago when she recently discovered that he was making a series of posts on Facebook reaching out for male lovers.

She told THE STAR that her inspection of the teen's wall on the social networking site drove her to tears and a loss for words, as she came to grips with what she was reading.

Among other things, she said, he wrote that he is fully aware of his decision to become intimate with men, and had been attracting 'friendly' men from abroad, one of whom promised to visit him.

It is also understood that the boy posted that he had sex with a female once before and he did not like it, a disclosure that his mother is finding hard to accept.

She said she immediately instructed him to remove the posts and had a 'mother/son' talk when it was revealed by the boy that he was molested at age seven, allegedly by a man he trusted.

The woman told our news team that her son told her that a business operator forcibly performed oral sex on him while the family was living in Montego Bay, St James, and he keeps having flashbacks about the incident.

Following his confession, the woman said she has shown full support for him as "he didn't know right from wrong at the time," she said.

The woman further stated that; "I've made an appoinment with the doctor to check him out to see if he has any STDs and I'm also trying to get in contact with his father."

Further investigations by THE STAR revealed that the man who is being accused of molesting the boy has also been accused of similar acts over a period of time.

It is being alleged that the man lured minors to his business in the Second City.

THE STAR was also told that there has been a case when a mob attempted to beat the accused man and he had to seek refuge at a police station.

Attempts by THE STAR to receive confirmation from the police about the alleged molestation incidents were unsuccessful as the officer on duty at the time of our enquiry said she was unaware.
