Legal source says SALCC incident most likely indecency

A Legal source has told the Times that an incident at Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC) last night, based on reports, would most likely constitute indecency rather than attempted rape as claimed.

The legal source said from reading the information in the story carried in the Times, it does not seem that the situation amounted to rape or attempted rape.

SALCC students had reported that a male Security Guard entered a classroom after 6 pm yesterday where an eighteen year old female student had gone in a game of hide and seek with other students.

According to the students, the guard exposed his penis and the female fled – jumping through a low level window to escape and raise an alarm.

The guard was later cornered by other students and held by other college security and the police.

“He may possibly be charged with indecent assault,” the source said.

According to the source, people may say that the intention of the alleged perpetrator was rape.

“But how do you prove intent?” The source said.

“A fundamental principle of Criminal Law is that a crime consists of both a mental and physical element – a person’s awareness of the fact that his or her conduct is criminal and the act itself – the physical element,” it was explained.

      Because she went there to hide,I guess he was referring to the game itself. They probably have a point, the guard probably thought by exposing himself she’d come onto him. Smh what a shame on his part. Losing your job for your foolishness.

        True dat.

        It is because of comments like the one you commented on that women are very often reluctant to some forward with reporting incidents.

        The commenter was most likely a man, and the troll will happily live undernath his dark and greasy rock.

        Bravo again to the victim and her friends for cornering the accused and holding him for security.
