Babysitter and boyfriend guilty of Carnal Knowledge

Story PictureParchue will stand trial for the offence but on Monday a jury found two other people accused of child molesting guilty as charged. After deliberating for two hours, a nine-member panel convicted thirty-four year old Wilfred Gillett and his common-law wife Beverly Simpson. Gillett was found guilty on five counts of carnal knowledge while Simpson was convicted on five counts of abetment to carnal knowledge and an additional count of indecent assault. The couple was undefended during trial, while Crown Counsel Nigel Ebanks prosecuted. They will reappear before Justice Troadio Gonzalez on January twenty-first for sentencing. The charges against the couple stemmed from the reports of a nine year old girl in 2006. According to the child, on several occasions between April twenty-eighth and May twenty-first of that year, Simpson, her babysitter, held her down while Gillett raped her.
