According to the Star, a Kingston pastor has been accused of repeatedly having sex with a 12-year-old girl before impregnating her. The pastor is at the moment being sought by detectives at the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse.
Law-enforcement sources revealed that the girl, who is now 14 years old, has given a detailed statement alleging that the 52-year-old clergyman first forced himself on to her before he began to reward her after their sexual encounters.
“He would give her money and other gifts so that she would not tell anyone,” one source revealed.
The names of the clergyman and the church he leads are being withheld to protect the identity of the alleged victim.
Investigators at CISOCA confirmed yesterday that several attempts have been made to locate the pastor, including visits to his Kingston-based church, but they have turned up empty.
According to law enforcement sources, the pastor is engaged to the mother of the 14-year-old girl. One source said the child reported that she would often visit the clergyman’s St Andrew home to look for her older sister, who was sent to live with the pastor “due to the lack of convenience at her mother’s home.”
Furthermore, since the news surfaced yesterday persons on social media have continued to share their disgust and disbelief.
- “So the Mother engaged to the Pastor and having sex with the daughter from she was 12 years old until she’s now 14 and pregnant!! This mother can’t be so blind not to notice anything for two years. And as for the Pastor , i hope they catch him and prosecute him to the full extent of the law”, said a commentor.
