Twelve Year Old Castries Girl Pregnant After Rape

Twelve Year Old Castries Girl Pregnant After Rape

A twelve year old girl living in Castries is pregnant after being raped by a thirty-two year old male.

The child’s mother told the Times that her daughter was examined today at Victoria Hospital where it was determined that she was three months pregnant.

While the mother spoke to the Times outside her residence, relatives reported that child lay on a bed inside the home crying, occasionally throwing up and battling a fever.

“She is blaming herself. She is crying a lot, a lot, a lot. I told her  do not blame yourself because it is not her, because she is a child. But she needs counselling – she needs help,” the child’s aunt said.

While the aunt was speaking, a teenage brother of the victim blurted:

“The boy (the alleged perpetrator) just had a child what day was that. That child just one year and that’s what you doing?”

An irate female family friend shouted:

“Pervert. These men too perverted!”

The mother, who revealed that she has eleven children, told the Times that from the information she gathered the twelve year old was at her Aunt’s house nearby when the accused chose a moment when he was alone with the child to force her to have sexual relations with him.

The alleged incident occurred prior to the reopening of school, the mother said.

However the alleged victim is reported to have mustered up the courage yesterday to tell her sister, who wrote a note  about the allegation that was  passed  to an older female sibling.

The older sibling  upon receiving the handwritten note disclosed the matter to the mother, according to information obtained by the Times.

The police were contacted and have begun an investigation into the incident.

However members of the family of the victim said they were outraged by the seeming slow pace of the investigation.

They expressed concern that the alleged perpetrator, whom they described as having been a close family friend, had not immediately been arrested and was free to evade justice by fleeing the country if he chose to.

Some residents of the community where the incident occurred were very vocal in condemning the sexual abuse of young females.

They expressed strong views that perpetrators should be publicly named and shamed.

Both the mother and aunt  of the victim asserted that the incident should put parents on guard not to trust menfolk around their female children.

Said the mother: “My advice is do not trust nobody by your daughters – it could be your brother, your uncle – nobody!”

    It is a sad day for men in our society. To betray the trust of a family and solicit sex from a minor is degrading and embarrassing. It is truly a sad day for me in our society.

    If a twelve year old is pregnant, then the rape can’t be ‘alleged’. I hate the prolific use of that word in St. Lucian reporting. Sex with a minor is rape in the eyes of the law and all moral constructs.

      I was thinking the SAME thing. I mean its CONFIRMED that she’s pregnant. Whats this nonsense about alleged this and alleged that! run a DNA on the fetus and the accused and HANG him! People who do these things don’t deserve to breathe.

    Please rewrite this article and stop insulting our intelligence. A 12 year old who is pregnant was not allegedly raped. She is a minor and cannot give consent. She is a victim. Point blank. This is irresponsible journalism at best, and only serves to further fuel the ignorance & pervasive rape culture in St. Lucia.

    No sin goes unpunished , I am sure he will get what he deserves, directly from the hands of God. How could you do something so inhuman to a young lady, that just started puberty, I thank God that the righteous judge saw what happen, and you will have to face him one day, I want to know what excuse you will use. I hope you repent and give your life to Christ, or else you will feel the flame of God’s wrath. SMH when I hear that time of sickness against young children. I wish there was a way to help this child out.

    There is still time to end the pregnancy, she has been through to much for her mother to allow her to go through with the pregnancy.

    Under my law and leading, all rapists would have been second guessing right now because what an example I would have already made of him. I beg you, give me a chance, it could change your life.

    It is time we start naming these criminals. Once they are charged then they should be named. An online registry should be created and their names placed there only to be removed after 10 years without any incidents of the same kind.

    13 years ago I was living in st Lucia 38year man raped a 9year old child boyfriend of the mother nothing was done then; in fact this was talked about on the radio the response from the male population was that this child seduced him therefore it was her fault. Today in 2016 the same thing continue to happen and you all can say is about politic when will you Lucian start looking after the next generation? I was angry then and more so now because you all still sitting your assets not protecting the vulnerable.
