Trini Principal On 75 Sex Charges.

Sup Travellers?! It's apparent that schools these days just have a knack for hiring pedophiles and sex offenders as principals because if I had a dollar for every time a principal is accused of raping students i'd be Bill Gates. Just Friday, a Principal from my home country of Trinidad and Tobago was arrested on 75 sex charges.

The Newsday reports that the principal of a Tobago school is expected to appear before a Scarborough Magistrate tomorrow facing 75 sex charges. The man was arrested at his home by Scarborough police on Friday night, and was charged under the Sexual Offences Act with allegedly committing offences of a sexual nature against a 12-year-old girl and other minors. Sources told the Sunday Express that several girls came forward with their story to the police. Police officials did some internal investigations at the school before arresting the principal. 

This arrest was made the same day that Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar read the riot act to citizens of this country, reminding the general public that people can face jail time if evidence of minors being sexually active is not reported. She said people can face seven years in prison and a fine of $15,000 is the punishment, parents, doctors, nurses, teachers and employers face if these matters were not reported. 

I was on the highway Friday and I heard the news report where Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar discussed the issue of rape to the citizens. I'm not sure if the Prime Minister's words encouraged the young girls to report their principal to the police but their decision to do so must be commended. I also commend the Prime Minister's call to action. I don't always agree with Kamla Persad-Bissessar but when I do, she makes sense. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
