(Trinidad Express) A WOMAN who allegedly had sexual intercourse with her 15-year-old stepson has been sent to St Ann’s Hospital for evaluation.
The 26-year-old woman who is not named to protect the identity of the child, appeared on Thursday before Siparia magistrate Margaret Alert.
She was charged with four offences of sexual penetration of the teen between July and August 2018.
The indictable charges were laid by constable Myers of the Child Protection Unit.
The woman appeared to be incoherent during her time before the court and police prosecutor Sgt Starr Jacob agreed with the magistrate that a report from St Ann’s could assist. She was sent to the institution for evaluation.
The woman will return to court on January 24.
The boy began living with the woman and her common law husband in the early months of 2018. In August the child reported to police that the woman came into his bedroom several times in July and August and had sexual intercourse with him.
