Police officer behind bars for Carnal Knowledge

Story PictureTonight a police officer is behind bars at the Hattieville Prison, charged with Carnal Knowledge. Magistrate Sharon Frazer denied Constable Horace Portillo bail after the prosecution objected on the grounds that the offense has become prevalent, that the defendant might interfere with the witness, and that the offense is of a serious nature. The incident in question occurred last Wednesday at Portillo’s house on Seagull Street. According to the police, the twelve year old primary school student admitted to having sex with the police officer after her father threatened her. The penalty for carnal knowledge of a minor is twelve years imprisonment.
