Man gets four years for sexually assaulting minor

Octavius Williams

SIXTY-ONE-YEAR-OLD, Octavius Williams was on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 sentenced to four years’ imprisonment  for engaging in sexual activity with minor who reportedly suffered a disability.

Williams appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann Mc Lennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

The North Ruimveldt resident was first arraigned on February 04, 2019. He was not required to plea to the indictable charge which read that on January 31, 2019 in Georgetown he engaged in sexual activity with the 13-year-old minor.

Reports state that Williams was known to the victim since she would see him often around. On the day in question, the minor was at her home when she saw Williams who forced the young girl into a secluded area. It was then that he assaulted her.

After engaging in such activities with the minor, he was attempting to pull up his pants when the girl’s father walked in. The matter was reported to a nearby station and he was subsequently told of the offence and arrested.

As such, the Magistrate believes that the trial provided sufficient evidence against the defendant.Sentencing was then handed down. Williams was charged in 2016 for a matter of a similar nature.
