NOT WISE: Wiseman pleads guilty to having sex with 15-year-old girl

Wisely ‘Wiseman’ Clement of Fond St. Jacques, Soufriere was yesterday, Wednesday, Feb. 20 re-arraigned on two counts of sexual intercourse with a minor.

Originally set for trial due to a plea of not guilty, Clement indicated through his attorney that he was willing to change his plea to avoid the process of trial by jury.

After ensuring that the defendant was fully aware of the implications of his new position, Justice Cumberbatch accepted the plea of guilty from Clement.

At the time of the incident in 2010, Clement was a 25-year-old farmer of Fond St. Jacques and the virtual complainant was a 15-year-old student of the Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary School.  Clement claims that he and the complainant entered a consensual relationship and had sex on at least two known occasions.

The matter was discovered and reported by the victim’s brother who had cause to search for his sister at the home of Clement on November 1, 2010.

The matter has been adjourned to April 18, 2013 for a presentence report.

  1. St. Lucia is a very hypocritical society with social biases as far as the eye can see. Compared to the rest of the caribbean the sexual acts committed by St. Lucia men are minimal.
    St. Lucia is a place which is also filled with very angry women. As to the root of this anger? It escapes me.
    I'm not defending anyone or against anyone, I'm just saying that our society has a lot more problems that what are created by our men or women. There are also those that are more or less the result of culture, religious beliefs, tradition and social status.
    I find St. Lucia women frigid, insecure, dependent and very angry. We all like to hear the bad about each other and are quick to condemn.
    An opinion is just that, and opinion. What is written above is just mine and is not meant with any disrespect. Educate yourself St. Lucia!!

    • As far as I see it all of you who are involved in this matter where a 14 yrs old is in a relationship with a 41 one year old man should be jailed..This is outright child abuse, what type of parents and community leaders and members support that kind of thing. she is under age, and what proper consent will a child of 14 can reasonably make. To many times we allow our children to follow in us the parents footsteps, allowing them to fall through the cracks of society. Shottie, your testimony her only speaks to failure on the parents parts, the extended family which includes you and the community members and the man for perpetuating such a vicious cycle. It is nothing to be proud off. what is most sad about these things is that most times the man is married or he have a little money, buy food a grocery for the house hold and that is most times deemed as ok.. one day she is going to wake up out of that and realize that the family did not protect her.

  5. Jean, a fifteen year old can't consent to sex. It's that kind of attitude that makes perverts think its ok to prey on kids in St.Lucia. I hope the judge throws the book at him!

  6. I don't see the logic in that. Those young children of now, likes to sleep with older men for money. If it was consensual, why take him to court. If the brother had not seen them it would still be going on.
