Middle-aged man accused of sex with 12-year-old

A 53-year-old man has been warned by the court to stay away from a 12-year-old he allegedly had sex with.

Carl Osbourne John, of Odessa McClean Drive, My Lords Hill, St Michael is accused of having unlawful sexual intercourse with the pre-teen sometime between July 1, 2009 and September 30, 2016.

John was not required to plea to the indictable charge when he appeared in the No. 1 District ‘A’ Criminal Court before Magistrate Douglas Frederick this morning.

There were no objections to bail, but police prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Reid argued for conditions to be attached to his release, if bail was granted.

As such, John was told by the magistrate not to contact the minor at any time, surrender his travel documents to the Bridgetown court and report to the District ‘A’ Police Station every Tuesday and Friday before 6 p.m. with valid identification.

He was granted bail in the sum of $5,000, which he secured with one surety, and will make his second appearance before Magistrate Frederick on August 10.

    Why such a wide date range for this charge, or was it multiple times? Article not clear on this point. Could be grounds for dismissal.

    He is a sex offender!!!! He did it once. This young girl is most likely not his only victim. If he done it once he will do it again. And what if it is/ gas been to a younger aged girl? I am so repulsed by this judges reprimand that. share their name and decision with the rest of the world. This judge should either step down, or be removed from duty.. Period.

    It’s not a matter of how many times he did this. It is that he is in the wrong he should not even be looking at her in a perverted way. She is a child and he is a grown man. He should not even be granted bail. People have gone to jail for less all now he should be imprisoned

    So I was not raped but was having sex when my abuser defiled me from aged 15 month,and another at aged 9 years.I am now telling my story about ” a man having sex with me” on a facebook page for the purpose of supporting survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

    A young lady asked me to write a poem telling her story of ” having sex ” at aged 5.

    An Invisible Child

    Asleep, I was dreaming I couldn’t breathe,
    terrible pain in belly above my knees,
    something pushing to get inside of me,
    wanted to wake up, go toilet to have a wee.
    Pain in my private jarred me awake, I did a double take!
    I screamed but no one heard.

    He looked like a dog this stranger above me,
    a drooling, hunching, whimpering dog was my daddy.
    Quiet now but my pain was really bad, like fire
    vision blurred ,suffocating, ears buzzing like a bee
    chest was pounding, felt like vomiting
    I cried in my tummy and no one heard.

    He slapped me up, said to get up go clean the mess,
    I dropped on the floor to put on my dress,
    too pained to stand I went on all fours,
    then saw the blood, wondered if I’d bleed to death.
    Daddy kissed my head and walked out the door.
    I cried but no one heard

    Sat for hours wondering why he’d punished me,
    Felt safe at last when mummy found me
    gave me a bubble bath ,made my favourite meal,
    something for pain, my favourite nightie.
    Confused when she said it was our secret to keep,
    we hugged each other and went off to sleep.
    I was in pain but I did not cry.

    Monster daddy came in, called me his princess
    who deserved Barbie dolls and Cinderella dresses.
    Flowers and chocolates were some of mummy’s presents
    they then got all loved up in front of me .
    A nightmare this, I looked in terror
    at mummy for kissing and loving that monster.
    I screamed in anguish but no one heard

    She boxed my ears, slapped my face and screamed angrily,
    called me ungrateful and difficult to please
    when presents and Disneyland tickets were bought by daddy!
    Magical Disneyland with monster daddy and mummy!!!
    I wet myself! I pooed myself!
    I screamed in terror but no one heard!
    I was an invisible child!

    At age 16 after abortions three, away I ran, moved with a gang.
    Drugs, alcohol, free sex, school sometimes.
    Found me a fella, we did it all- he was THE bomb!
    He came with another and we became three,
    He withheld the drugs, beat me up for dissing his mates
    wanting an orgy when they moved on me.
    Lesson learnt, shut up and put up!

    Feeling bad I became a slag to get a fix to feel better
    Selling myself to men like dogs, just like my father.
    Crazy crazed I robbed a homeless beggar!
    What in the world had I come to?
    Surely a terrorist bomb would’ve been better,
    after slicing my wrists with brand new razors,
    than waking up alive to see at my bedside
    my father and mother!

    I screamed in terror but no one heard.
    How could they? I was not there.
    I was an invisible child.

    Don’t blame the victim. She is a child. She is a minor. She was violated by a vile man. He should be prosecuted and jailed for the rest of his foul miserable life.

    Wow sadly this is a constant behavior throughout barbados. The family of the girl should give him a beating , because he will not go to prison. The courts don’t care about young kids having sex with grown adults, and the child care board, that’s another story. Barbados is too much of a proud island to admit to all the horrible things going on. Robberies. I know guys who travel around at night looking to rob homes. Some home owner gotta shoot and kill one of them for them to stop. These guys know some parents are too poor to get a lawyer to fight their case, and put this guy in prison. Then he will say the girl push up herself to him, but he’s a grown man. You the one have to tell her parents, or tell the girl to not address any issues to him.

    He been having sex with the girl from the age of 5? And why didn’t the parents or mother send him to jail when he first interfere with the child. Where was the mother. I know lots of family members, or close friends do this to girls. They pretend they are a close family friend. I will love to know if he was the mother’s boyfriend, and the mother let this slide. You will be surprise at what some women would do for money. Was he supporting the home, and the child held as the ramson goat? And what about the neighbors, didn’t anyone know about this? Did her siblings know about this? You have to be very careful who you bring in your house these days. This girl gonna be tarnish for life. She will need help. Some single mothers have no love for some of the kids if they had a falling out with the child father. The innnocent child have to hold that burden, so I am wondering if the mother cared about the child, and if the father is in the child’s life. These questions needs to be asked. Thank god I told people if they touch my 5 year old, they gonna die. No police coming, they and my big ass knife will do the talking. Too many predators out walking around.

    Why does Barbados not have a Sex Offenders Register? All crimes of a sexual nature – the offenders have this stamped into their passport making travel for s/he virtually impossible.

    it is so sad and nasty for these grown men and I dear say individuals to prey on these young children. It destroys their confidence in themselves and people around them. If it is true as suggested the accused should be punished for that. I have daughters myself and I shudder to think if that was my child what could happen.

    This man was interfering with his two daughters from St, Vincent that no longer lives with him. ( NOT HIS WIFE CHILDREN). Seems like he has an eye for all the little females in the house from primary to teen years. I live in the area and know that he has two children from his wife niece. They all live in the same house. The niece is the eldest and big sister of the complainant. Sad and nasty!!! SMH!!!
