A magistrate has described as “sick and reprehensible” the actions of a man who wanted to watch his own sister while masturbating.
“What kind of man would want to have sex with his sister?” Magistrate Bertie Pompey asked the accused man, Cornelius Davy, at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
Pompey asked Davy whether he ever had any mental problem.
The police said Davy was not known to have a history of mental health issues, nor did he have any criminal record.
Davy was brought before the court on a charge that on Dec. 29, 2016, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Christina Davy of the same address.
He pleaded guilty to the charge.
Prosecutor, Station Sergeant Elgin Richards told the court that around 11.50 a.m. on the date in question, the virtual complainant was at work at Diamond Wood lumber yard in Diamond when the defendant emerged from some nearby bushes and told her to stand still so he could have a chance to masturbate while looking at her.
The virtual complainant did not oblige him and, as she walked away, she felt a blow to the back of her head.
She turned and saw her brother.
A struggle ensued and she fought him off as he tried to unbutton her blouse.
As the struggle continued, a male who was passing by went to her assistance.
Police said the passerby pulled Davy off his sister.
Police said he was in the habit of harassing his sister for sex, telling her nobody wants to have sex with him.
Davy was sentenced to six months in prison for unlawful and malicious wounding.
