Children's Advocate Diahann Gordon Harrison

A St. Catherine teacher is behind bars facing charges for having sex with one of his students.
   
The teacher was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon following an investigation by the Office of the Children's Advocate and the Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA).
   
"We had investigated some time ago, allegations in relation to a teacher at a high school (who) was having sexual relations with one of his students, and so we can now confirm that he has been taken into custody, based upon our investigations having been conducted and he will face the court next week Tuesday in the parish of St. Catherine," disclosed Children's Advocate Diahann Gordon Harrison.
   
She said an investigation was conducted by her agency after it received a report on the matter.

"We conducted the investigation by speaking to the child in the issue, collecting the relevant statements, dealing with the forensic examination and also collecting supporting witness statements and really did the investigation from start to finish which resulted in the arrest," she asserted.
