The wife of a St James pastor, who was charged with rape, over the weekend had charges laid against her in connection with the incident.
Pastor Jason Rose was charged with the Rape of a 15-year old girl on Wednesday (June 9 ).
Rose’s wife, Kimoy Rose, was charged after it was alleged that she attempted to coerce the girl into saying that her initial reports were untrue.
Kimoy was charged with Taking Steps to Pervert the Course of Justice among other charges under the Child Care and Protection Act .
The mother of the minor was also taken into custody.
It is alleged that the mother and Kimoy took the child to the police station to make a secondary report that the allegations were untrue.
The mother was subsequently charged and Kimoy Rose named as a Person of Interest on Friday (June 11).
Kimoy surrendered herself to the police in St. James and was charged after being questioned.
Detectives from the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) charged Rose after he allegedly assaulted the girl while she was at the church, sometime in March 2021.
A report was made to the police and an investigation launched.
Rose reported to the Freeport Police on Monday (June7) after several attempts to locate him proved futile.
He was charged following an interview in the presence of his attorney.
Jason Rose is scheduled to appear in the St. James Parish Court on Monday (June 14)
