PSV driver sentenced to jail for ‘preying’ on teen

Public service vehicle (PSV) driver George Lamar McLawrence will not be plying any routes for at least another six years or so after he was sentenced to jail today for serious indecency against a 19-year-old male.

McLawrence, who in October was found guilty of the offence, was told by Madam Justice Jacqueline Cornelius in the No.5 Supreme Court that he was being imprisoned, “in order to protect the public, especially vulnerable males whom you may prey on or come into contact with in your occupation”.

The 7th Avenue, Skeete’s Road, The Ivy resident was remanded to HMP Dodds two months ago when he had his bail revoked after a jury had found him guilty.

In giving evidence during the trial, the victim told the court he left the Sheraton mall around 9 p.m. on September 28, 2008 and boarded McLawrence’s vehicle to Bridgetown.

He said when he was about to disembark the driver told him he would take him home, but instead transported him to The Belle, St Michael where he was ordered to remove his pants and underwear.

When he refused, the teen said, McLawrence put a pair of scissors to his neck and touched his penis. After he began crying he was subsequently ordered to put his clothes on, and McLawrence took him home about 3 a.m. the following day.

In handing down the sentence the judge pointed to the age difference between McLawrence and the victim – who was described as “slow” during the trial – as well as the teen’s vulnerability.

“It suggests a level of predatory behaviour because you preyed on his vulnerabilities . . . further because a weapon was used,” the judge told the PSV driver, adding that the assault was a traumatic experience for the young man.

Time spent on remand was credited to the sentence, which means McLawrence still has five years, eight months and 23 days left to serve.

    This was a serious crime. He took advantage of a disadvantage young man by force. He deserved to be in jail.

    @j sarge!!!! Please tell Freunder that , that does NOT Constitute Slander by the CCJ tell him that they are telling it like it is

    OUR Constitution says that a trial should be held in a Reasonable time, doe this mean that Freundel thinks that 9 Years, 2 Months an about 12 Days is a Reasonable time to conclude a case like this ????

    WHERE IS THE SLANDER “FREUNDEL” considering how many more cases they are still waiting to go through our Court System.
