Jamaican Minister Rupert Clarke Faces Another Sex Charge


JAMAICAN Moravian Minister Rupert Clarke has been charged with another count of having sex with someone under 16 years old.

This was disclosed at Monday's opening of the St. Elizabeth Circuit Court. He is therefore facing three counts of having sex with someone under 16 years old.

The additional count is in relation to a 13 year-old girl who is the sibling of the two sisters with whom the 64 year-old Clergyman is also accused of having sexual intercourse.

Clarke, who was not present, is scheduled to appear in court on June 23 when it is expected that the prosecution will apply for the case to be transferred from St. Elizabeth to the Home Circuit Court in Kingston.   

Clarke was taken into custody last December 28 by the St. Elizabeth Police after he was reportedly seen in a comprising position with a 15 year-old girl in a car along the Austin Main Road in the parish.
