Teen faces indecency charge

courtA St George teen who was charged in connection with a video showing a male making sexual advances towards a minor, appeared in court Thursday and was granted bail.

Kwame Everton Dashawn Yearwood, 17, of Groves Tenantry, was not required to plead to the indictable offence when he made his first appearance before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.

Yearwood, who was arrested after the video made the rounds on social media, is charged with committing an act of serious indecency towards a child under the age of 16.

The incident allegedly occurred sometime between September 17 and 19 this year.

Yearwood was granted bail in the sum of $5 000, which he posted with one surety, and was ordered to return to the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on January 23, 2017.

He was also ordered to stay away from the complainant and the Nursery Drive van stand.

In a separate matter, Wayne Dexter Peters was also granted $5 000 bail on a rape charge.

Peters, 35, of Beckwith Street, St Michael, is charged with having sexual intercourse with a female, sometime between August 19 and September 30, without her consent.

Peters will return to court on January 23 as well.

    Given that he is a under 18 and they may be his first offence it warrants this young man be placed under strict supervision. He qualified for bail and has been placed back into the same environment which molded his predatory instincts. What restrictions have been placed on his movements? Is he free to roam and prey on other people’s daughters? The one good thing about this situation is that parents are aware of one more sexual offender in the Barbadian society. We need a sex offenders registry.

      He looks a bit slow to me,he needs some sort of intervention because if he continues along this course he will either end up in jail or someone will end up in jail for him.

      Yes he was very very persuasive,good thing the young lady was a bit strong I keep wondering how she allowed herself to be caught up in such a complicated situation,she needs some serious counseling.

      She’s at the age where girls want boys to like them…. She’s also naive and trusting…. Luckily for her… She had sense enough to keep refusing….

    The girl should have been charged also ..if not for the video she would not have reported anything she was there on her own free will I am not taking sides but she was seen kissing the boy so she knew what she was doing

    • harry turnover October 22, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      …but Zeus she didn’t report ANYTHING .She ONLY came into the spot light BECAUSE of the video.Had it not been for that video it would have gone down as another BOY GIRL encounter at that location BETWEEN children THAT KNOW EACH OTHER.
      CHARGE the girl too for engaging in LEWD conduct IN PUBLIC

    None of which as a minor you can consent too. Leave little girls alone

    • harry turnover October 22, 2016 at 4:24 pm

      The BOY is ONLY 17…you want the BOY to go after a 22 year old woman ?
      when you was a BOY you din used to engage in rudeness wid lil girls as it was called then ?
      When I was a youngster,a girl said she was 16 but looked like 17…two years down the road I said happy 18th birthday…..and to my surprise she said she was only 16….and when asked why she did that ..her reply was…” if I did tell you I was 14 ,you din gine want to interfere (deal ) wid me ‘
      Yes I know the Law,but….what could I have done in a situation like that ?
