‘Only Mrs Bobbitt could stop this man from reoffending’

A Pembroke man who admitted having sex with an underage girl told the teen he was ‘the love of her life' when it was discovered she was pregnant — only to later discover the child wasn't his.

Kishauni Wolffe, 28, pleaded guilty earlier this year to three counts of having unlawful carnal knowledge with a girl under the age of 16, after he pursued her over Facebook.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said they had sex as many as 15 times over a period of several months in 2012, although Wolffe claimed they only had sex on two occasions.

Wolffe, who it was revealed in court had a child with a 14-year-old when he was 17, had been out of prison for less than a month when he met the victim, having been sentenced to five years in jail in 2011 for threatening to murder his ex-girlfriend, Danielle Foley.

At the time, a psychological assessment said Wolffe ‘had a high risk of reoffending and violence'.

Appearing in Supreme Court yesterday, prosecutors said Wolffe had shown no sign of remorse for his latest offence, while Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves, who sentenced Wolffe in 2011, said the only thing likely to stop him would be if he met ‘Mrs Bobbitt'. A reference to Lorena Bobbitt, an American who chopped off her husband's penis with a knife while he slept.

Mr Justice Greaves added that Wolffe appeared to show a preference towards younger women, noting his personal history.

“He has been doing it for ten years,” he said. “He still doesn't understand. We can expect a lot of pregnancies in this country with a man like that.”

Wolffe's latest offences were revealed after the victim told her mother she was pregnant, but after he admitted the offence it was discovered Wolffe was not the father. Prosecutor Nicole Smith said Wolffe first spoke to the victim on Facebook and, despite knowing her age, invited her to his home where they had sex.

The victim later discovered she was pregnant and told her mother of her relationship with Wolffe, and the mother subsequently told police.

Wolffe was arrested and, when questioned by police, admitted having sex with the victim.

It was later determined by DNA testing that he was not the father of the victim's child.

Ms Smith said Wolffe knew his actions were wrong, noting that he hid his relationship with the victim from his mother, but had shown no remorse for the offence, and would likely reoffend.

She said that following his arrest, Wolffe was granted bail under the condition he not contact the victim, but the victim's mother intercepted a letter from the defendant to her daughter.

In the letter, he urged the victim not to “stress out” for the sake of their child, and called himself the love of her life.

“This defendant will repeat this behaviour,” Ms Smith said. “There's nothing that indicates he is remorseful or will stop doing what he has done.

“He cannot understand that it's wrong, that it's inappropriate at least.”

Given all the circumstances, she argued that the only mitigating factor in Wolffe's favour was his early guilty plea and that an immediate custodial sentence was required.

Defence lawyer Mark Daniels, representing Wolffe, however stressed that his client had admitted the offence at the very first opportunity, and had only had sex with the victim on two occasions.

Mr Justice Greaves adjourned the sentencing so that both counsel can provide the court with recent sentencing precedents.
