Woman accused of extortion in child abuse case
La Romana prosecutors have convinced a court to impose coercive measures, including an exit ban and regular court appearances, on a mother who allegedly received half a million pesos to allow her underage daughter to have sexual relations with an adult. The girl became pregnant.
La Romana prosecutors, under judge Richard Guilamo Cedano and judge Andrea Familia of the Gender Violence Unit say the mother received RD$500,000 to desist from penal action against a man named as Felito Paredes. He also received coercive measures for having sex with a minor. A check he had written out to the woman was presented as proof, as well as court statements where the woman said she was aware of her daughter’s relationship with Felito Paredes and the damage the relationship had caused the victim.
The prosecutors established that the mother had extorted Paredes.
Prosecutor Guilamo Cedano said that he had orders from Attorney General Francisco Dominguez Brito to prosecute parents or guardians who accept payment in return for desisting from penal action for sexual abuse of minors.
The mother is accused of violating Arts. 60 and 355 of the Penal Code on seduction, complicity and sexual abuse of minors.
