13-year-old in alleged buggery case changes statement

May 14, 2021

The 13-year-old who was allegedly buggered by five men in St Ann has reportedly changed her account of the incident.

It is reported that when the matter was heard in court this morning, the 13-year-old reportedly told investigators that she was not abducted and that she had gone with one of the accused willingly and that she was never buggered.

Five persons were charged in relation to the allegations.

Deputy superintendent of police in charge of crime for St Ann, Linton Bailey, and Director of Public Prosecutions, Paula Llewellyn both declined to comment on the matter.

In another twist, a sixth person has been charged in connection with the same incident and will appear in court next week.

At court today, two of the accused were offered bail while the others were remanded.

A bail application is expected to be heard for them next week Tuesday.

Meanwhile, an attorney representing one of the accused men who was offered bail today indicated that he will be pursuing the matter of a change in the story of the young girl.
