The teacher was taken into custody on Tuesday after an investigation by the Office of the Children's Advocate (OCA), in tandem with the Centre for Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA), over a period of time.
Children's Advocate, Diahann Gordon-Harrison, has disclosed that the accused is a high school teacher.
He is scheduled to face the St Catherine Parish Court next Tuesday.
The probe that led to the teacher’s arrest was reportedly prompted by a report to the OCA on the matter.
"We conducted the investigation by speaking to the child in the issue, collecting the relevant statements, dealing with the forensic examination, and also collecting supporting witness statements, and really did the investigation from start to finish, which resulted in the arrest," Gordon-Harrison told RJR News.
