A 54-YEAR-OLD man appeared before a Port of Spain magistrate last week charged with paying for sexual services from a 15-year-old girl.
Elias Monroe, aka Learie, of Bourg Mulatresse, appeared before the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on March 17, after being charged with the offence by PC Castle of the North-Eastern Division Child Protection Unit (CPU) on March 16. The matter was adjourned to April 15.
A police press release issued on Friday said investigations began after a 15-year-old made a report to the CPU in March 2019 that a man had paid her $250 to stay home from school and have sex with him.
Enquiries were headed by acting Insp Davidson and Cpl Peters-Wilson of the CPU.
