Jamaica: PORN PREDATORS – Kids tapping online obscenity becoming sex abusers, says DPP

Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Paula Llewelyn has blamed careless parenting and an increasing consumption of pornography as triggers for many of the graphic cases of child-on-child sexual abuse coming before her office.

Llewellyn, who has been a prosecutor for more than 30 years, has observed that there is a new dimension to the cases coming before prosecutors.

“What we are finding now as prosecutors is a heavy sexual component in terms of you see a child of 16 or a person of 17 raping or having sex with a child under 16, which is an offence, and invariably, you will find oral sex being a part of the scenario, or we have even seen buggery,” she said during a virtual meeting of the Rotary Club of Downtown Kingston on Wednesday.

The DPP cited as an example of child predators a case in Westmoreland where a nine-year-old, on her way from school, was sexually assaulted and strangled by a 13-year-old boy.

The accused’s mother is in denial. The case has not yet been heard.
