A Portland Pastor who was charged with rape, is scheduled to appear in the Portland Parish Court today, June 17.
The accused, 23-year-old Pastor Jamar Harrison, of John’s Town Road, in Port Antonio, Portland, was charged on Friday, June 11, by Detectives attached to the Centre for the Investigations of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse, after he reportedly had sex with a 13-year-old girl, and got her pregnant.
Reports are that the girl was just 13-year-old when she met Pastor Harrison on social media during the course of last year, and became intimate with the accused.
On December 1, 2020, the child and her grandmother were transported to CISOCA where it was revealed that she was pregnant.
Following an interview, the child’s grandmother was charged for failing to report to the OCR.
On Monday, June 7, an operation was conducted in downtown Kingston, where the accused pastor Jamar Harrison was apprehended. He was charged after being interviewed in the presence of his attorney.
