A 37-year-old primary school teacher charged with having sexual intercourse with his 11-year-old student is to appear in the St Catherine Parish court today.

The male teacher is charged with having sex with a minor, indecent assault and grievous sexual assault.

The police allege the accused teacher convinced the child to engage in sexual activities with him on more than one occasion.

A report was made to the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse, CISOCA.

Investigators from the Constabulary’s sex crimes unit took the child to the hospital and after further investigations, the teacher was charged.

An application for the teacher’s bail is expected to be made today.
