Former Policeman gets life sentence for sodomising teen boy
Former Policeman Milton Kewley was on Tuesday sentenced to life imprisonment for somodising a 13-year-old boy.
Kewley, 50 was sentenced by Justice Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the High Court after being found guilty of the offence a day prior.
The former cop was convicted of raping the teen in 2013.
“I think that the jury made a mistake; I would never have sex with any male.
“I am not attracted to any male; God is my witness,” Kewley said in pleading innocence.
During a plea of mitigation, Kewley’s attorney Maxwell McKay told the court that his client worked as a counsellor and was an active member of the Universal Church of God.
State Prosecutor Lisa Cave had pleaded with the court to impose a heavy sentence on the accused, citing the age of the victim at the time, arguing that Kewley abused his position of trust.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment with a possibility for parole after serving 45 years.
