Cops probe if ... MOM PIMPED 13-Y-O GIRL - Teen said to have had four abortions
André Williams, STAR Writer

The St Andrew North police are pursuing the mother of a teen after it was unearthed that she profited from her child being engaged in prostitution, which led to four abortions, THE STAR has learnt.

Information reaching our news desk is that the teen, now 17 years old, had been allegedly introduced to prostitution from as early as age 13, while living with her mother in Ocho Rios, St Ann.

Allegations are that the teen raised money for them both before moving to live with her father in a St Andrew community.

The WEEKEND STAR gathered that the teen developed serious complications and after seeking medical attention, she was told that because of the multiple abortions, it is unlikely that she would be able to have a child.

The doctor, The WEEKEND STAR was told, advised her to make a report to the police in relation to issues discussed during her visit with the medical practitioner.

Relatives also told our news team that the teen often spoke of committing suicide and was involved in incidents of misbehaving.

Reports are that these were among the deciding factors, which led her to talk about what she had been put through.

The teen subsequently went in to the police and made a report following which a warrant was activated and her mother is now being pursued.

When our news team contacted the St Andrew North police, a senior officer confirmed the reports and told The WEEKEND STAR that the file had been turned over to the Centre for The Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA).

Investigations are ongoing.
