Elderly man jailed for rape

A 71-year-old man will be spending the next ten years and eight months in jail for raping a 70-year-old woman over three years ago.

“Rape is one of the most serious offences which can be committed against a woman. It is used to physically subdue and violate the woman and utterly degrade her. It is cruel and humiliating, since the woman is forced to be intimate with a man against her will in circumstances where she is completely helpless and at the mercy of her attacker.

“Sex is designed to be an enjoyable experience, not used as a tool for someone’s perverse gratification,” Justice Wanda Blair told Oliver Chesterfield Fields during sentencing.

Fields, of Edey Village, Christ Church, was found guilty on January 16 in in Supreme Court No. 4A. Principal State Counsel Joyann Catwell and State Counsel Maya Kellman prosecuted, while attorneys Neville Reid and Andrew Pilgrim, SC, represented Fields. (SD)
