A 24-year-old male teacher who was allegedly involved in a sexual relationship with one of his male students at a prominent high school in Ocho Rios, St. Ann has been slapped with additional charges as further details of the case emerge.
According to reports, the unnamed business education teacher was arrested and taken into custody on Thursday, May 5, for having sex with a 15-year-old male student. This sexual misconduct was said to be brought to light by the minor.
Further details arising from the case are that there was a second male student involved, whereby he, along with the teacher and the other student had made plans to meet at a hotel in Ocho Rios for sexual favours. This was discovered when a parent who grew suspicious followed the minor and made a report to the police.
The accused was subsequently charged by the Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) of the St. Ann Police Division with three offences including one count of buggery, indecent assault and grievous sexual assault.
The lawyer representing the accused claimed that there is a “conspiracy between students and teachers” at the school.
The teacher is scheduled to appear in the St. Ann Parish Court to answer the charges.
