The First Collegiate Court of the National District sentenced 62-year old Loveall James Willis to eight years in La Victoria Jail, the most overcrowded and notorious prison in the country. Two 13 and 16 year old boys testified against him. State prosecutors said the US citizen preyed on the children at the Plaza Juan Baron in Santo Domingo.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office had granted the case the legal classification of commercial sexual exploitation and psychological and sexual abuse, crimes foreseen and sanctioned in articles 410 and 396 of Law 136-06, as well as articles 83 and 86 of Law 631- 16 on Control and Regulation of Weapons, since the convicted person was seized with a knife, according to a press release from the National District Prosecutor’s Office.

The US citizen was arrested in October 2016 and held pre-trial custody in Najayo jail. He was arrested by a Tourist Police agent (Cestur) in the Colonial City when found physically and verbally mistreating a 16-year old teenager boy who accused him of having oral sex with him but not paying him the promised RD$3,500.
