Charges Made in Latest Haut de la Garenne Arrest

~ Haut de la Garenne

The 45-year-old man arrested late last week has been charged over allegations of sexual abuse at Haut de la Garenne.

Michael Aubin, who was born in Jersey was detained in the UK on Thursday and flown back to Jersey for questioning.

Aubin faces charges relating to assaults on three separate children that were committed between 1977 and 1980. He will appear before the Magistrate tomorrow.

Aubin is charged with one count of sodomy against a male child and three counts of indecent assault on two other children. Additional charges may be filed.

At the time of the alleged abuses, Aubin would have been between the ages of 14 to 16 – a child, himself.

As one reader wondered, will Aubin be more willing to name the adults who were involved or participated in the systematic abuse alleged to have occurred at Haut de la Garenne during that time?
