Funeral home operator said molested boy from church

Businessman Shawn Lawrence, of a downtown Kingston funeral home, is now before the courts on allegations he molested a boy in St Catherine.

Lawrence was charged with buggery and indecent assault following an investigation by CISOCA detectives.

The accused appeared in the St Catherine Parish Court this week on the charges.

Although the full details were not disclosed in open court, Loop News ascertained that it is being alleged that the molestation occurred during visits to Lawrence’s Linstead, St Catherine home by a church sister and the boy.

Lawrence was remanded in custody until next week when he’s due back in court.
