– pretended to be female during Facebook chat

A POLICEMAN, on Monday, appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court accused of attempting to engage in sexual activity with a 17-year-old boy, one day after procuring pornography from him.

He denied the two sexual related offences and was granted $100, 000 bail by Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus.

It is alleged that on January 19, 2020, at Georgetown, the policeman procured child pornography for himself through a computer system from the child. It is further alleged that the policeman met the child the following day at Kitty, Georgetown, with the intention of abusing or engaging in sexual activity.

Prosecutor Inniss informed the court that on January 19, the policeman was in communication with the child via Facebook Messenger under the pretext of being a female. He requested several nude photos and videos from the child of himself. After his entertainment with the child’s photos and videos, he proceeded to make plans to meet the child. The cop, the prosecutor said, tricked the child into believing he would first be meeting the female’s uncle. The uncle’s role was to examine the teen to ensure he did not have leaks, rashes or boils on his private parts. Once he was cleared during the examination, he would meet the female.

According to the prosecutor, the child was very hesitant to comply but the accused reportedly persisted. The child met the accused at a location in the central Georgetown area the following day and together they journeyed to Kitty. During the examination, the police and a child care officer entered the room.

The accused was told of the offence and arrested.

He will return to court on November 6, 2020.
