Charges likely for ‘Otiesha’ today – Police

first_imgThe Police have, on Sunday, said it would “likely” be recommended that charges be laid on Monday against transgender Otis “Otiesha” Pearson, who has been accused of paedophilia.Pearson was arrested on March 6 last, and has been in custody for almost six days, as Police continue their investigations regarding his involvement with underage males.“We received the file from the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA) and we are now investigating the matter officially,” Police “A” Division Commander Leslie James told this publication.The Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) closed its investigation into Pearson’s alleged misconduct back in February.According to CC&PA Director Ann Green, the Agency has gathered statements from a number of persons, including the young man in the middle of the controversy, and it is expected to move ahead with the case.The public became enraged when Pearson was heard in an interview reporting that he “has a little boy for every day of the week”.However, after he was bashed on social media, Pearson quickly defended himself by explaining that the term “little boy” was taken out of context. He attempted to cover up his alleged transgressions by stating that the term is actually referring to persons above the legal age of consent, and he said it is also used when referring to his colleagues.The statement quickly became a serious matter when a photo of Pearson hugging a young man was leaked on social media site Facebook. Many users of that site were of the opinion that the young man was underage, the age of consent in Guyana being 16.After the photos were leaked, investigations revealed that the lad was indeed below the age of 16, and that he was being bullied.last_img
