46-Yr-Old Man Charged With Touching Young Boy

February 1, 2013

In Magistrates Court this morning [Feb 1] a 46-year-old man was charged with offences that alleged he touched a child under 12-years-old for sexual purposes. The defendant — who cannot be named for legal reasons — had his trial date set for May 2013.

Represented by lawyer Victoria Pearman and appearing in front of Magistrate Archie Warner, the defendant was bailed for $6,000 and ordered to stay away from witnesses, report to Hamilton Police Station every Monday and not to associate with minors under 16. The offences are alleged to have occurred earlier this month.

    castration should be a mandatory part of all punishment for pedophiles on the rock.

    The simple fact that the sentances are usually a joke only serves to encourage this behavior, which I should add is widespread! Most cases go unreported.

  2. Sorry Sir says:


  3. Bermy Gooner says:

    Jesus, what is up with the numerous perverts being brought before the courts these days? Seems to be a new case on a daily basis. Lock him up in general population.

    • Please Leave Politics says:

      It is pretty interesting. I’m wondering if there has been in increase in the crime or an increase in the reporting. I hope it is the latter.

    • Islander says:

      They are taking equal rights the wrong way…. and why they can’t name this guy – they named Miguel D.

  4. Real Talk (original) says:

    It’s good that more of these cases seem to be making the headlines because perhaps the taboo around the subject is being lifted somewhat and we are empowering our children to speak up.

    Either that or we have WAY more sick individuals running around that we used to.

    In any event, maybe Minister Fahy can pull some strings and have that Sex Offenders Registry the OBA promised up and running “effective immediately”. The longer it is delayed the more of these predators who can potentially slip through the safety net we must put in place for our children.

  5. Whats Done in the DARK says:

    @BermyGooner …. i agree, but i dont think any of this sort of thing is “new” or just starting to happen in Bermuda. i just think more and more people are getting brave enough to come forward about it. The worst part about it is, there are MANY more kids who are made to believe the behaviour is OK…. and who’s abusers are STILL abusing them.

    • Bermy Gooner says:

      Absolutely scary stuff that so many of them are lurking out there and continue to committ their filth. Sex offenders register is something that is needed, unfortunately, in this island nowadays.

  6. lyfe says:

    wtf is goin on lately!!

  7. hrmmmm says:

    wait why was he given bail? so he can allegedly do it again to someone else’s child? oh come on now court system! let’s think a little more and not be such a disgrace.

  8. Read my mind says:

    @ lfye – you took the words right out of my mouth! WTF is wrong with these people?! Honestly…it’s disgusting and ridiculous and I also agree with castration!!

  9. god1st says:

    @ Amsterdamned i agree

  10. navin johnson says:

    check Mr. Warners ruling on these types of cases…little more than slaps on the wrist…..he needs to retire….

  11. Simple says:

    Seriously it’s beyond time to sort out these perverts. Enough is enough!!

  12. Winnie Dread says:

    Everyone has a right to get bailed, however for certain serious allegations I say no bail sheesh. I guess if he killed a dangerous dog he’d be remanded in custody, talk about inconsistencies in the judicial process smdh.

  13. bermy says:

    Why are their names always kept a secret?! Put em on blast so the public knows who these sick disgusting people are!! And BAIL?! REALLY??!!

  14. tricks are for kids says:

    Shame that there are so many laws that protect them….I bet you they would think twice if they knew they would be named and their picture put in the paper…..Lawyers should turn them away and make them defend themselves…..

  15. only in Bermuda says:

    I believe that their name can only be published once their convicted. Not before then. This is to protect the victim during the trail process.

  17. Xman says:

    C A S T R A T I O N –
    than you wont have to worry about him again.
    The Judge should have sent him to supreme Court.—— weak Magistrate!

  18. its only an allegation most of you sound like people who have no idea of how the law works. He could be found not guilty and the boy could be lying. Stop with all the castration s$%t!

  19. What Do You THink says:

    Tricks hit the nail right on the head. If I was a lawyer and one of these sickos walked in my door. I would say there is the door I am booked until eternity. As for some of these cases its not always possible to link the accused to the victim. If that was the case there should be no shortage of witnesses to help the victim. The Judges need to get real and look at the victim as their own flesh and blood. I bet you will not see a bail prior to the case or any type of parole after the sentencing either. This is DISGUSTING to read about adults who should know better, taking advantage of minors who futures are now ruined. Touch my son or daughter.. u would never know what hit you

  20. swing voter says:

    chances are the man is either a close relative, or otherwise in a position of trust. If you suspect your husband, boyfriend, son, nephew, uncle, music teacher, boy scout leader, football coach displays a tendency to be ‘overly involved’ with a child, please take ask questions

  21. Bobmarlin says:

    Lock him up for 40 years,no chance of parole,if found guilty!

  22. Juan Burmuda says:

    Swing voter it goes both ways. Lots of women violate little boys and girls but some how get away with it.

  23. real says:

    Why is it they can’t name these disgusting freaks everytime there is a case of this nature? If anything the public should be made aware of these people.
