A Parent’s Perspective On The Conviction Of Pedophile Former MAC (Methodist Agogic Center) Principal Cedric Hodge

I was wondering if no one cared. This principal broke my heart. I trusted him and had the utmost respect for him. He betrayed all the teachers, parents and most of all the students that attended that school.
You drop your child off personally to avoid the corruption and filth of the public buses, unaware that the corruption and filth was right in school, the head of the institution. Parents once again you can never be too careful with your children. I might be considered overprotective but someone has to be. Why, where and how? Simple questions, be alert don’t take anything for granted. Your child is not even on the honor roll but his principal is showing him a lot of attention, seeking his company. Principal or teacher there’s reason for concern. Ask if you can tag along if such is the case or call other parents to find out if they’re child is going.
Trust me i can write forever on this terrible tragedy. Cedric Hodge i am beyond disappointed by what you did to innocent boys. As a mother i know that you stole something from those children that can never be replaced. You will never be forgiven. Six years is hardly any compensation to the children, parents and the community!!

Back Story

Former school principal Cedrick Hodge (52) was sentenced by the Court of First Instance on Wednesday morning to five years in prison for assaulting and raping three minor boys.
The Prosecution accused Hodge of lechery, assault and rape of three minor boys and the possession and distribution of pornographic images in 2004-2005 and 2015. The Prosecutor originally had called for a six-year prison sentence.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the former principal of one of Methodist Agogic Centre’s (MAC’s) campuses actively groomed his victims through social-media chats, took them out with permission of their parents, bought them gifts and took two of them to a deserted property that belonged to his wife. In one case he purchased a bottle of Desperado for one of his minor victims.

The Judge dismissed the first charge of sexual misconduct against a minor Hodge had groomed and with whom he had oral sex in 2004-2005. However, the judge found the other allegations against Hodge justified.

The case started when the mother of one of the victims intercepted chats of a highly sexual nature between Hodge and her son and filed a report against Hodge on July 23, 2015. Other victims reported themselves on a special tip line opened by the Court of Guardianship. The judge also stated in his verdict that the five-year sentence was minus the time Hodge already had spent in jail.
Former school principal C.C.H. (52) has been sentenced by the Court of First Instance of St. Maarten on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 to five (5) years in jail. C.C.H was found guilty of rape of a minor (12/13 years old), indecent assault of a minor (15 years old) and possession and distribution of child pornography. The victims were pupils at the same school where C.C.H. worked as a principal. These acts took place between November 2013 and September 2015. C.C.H. was absolved from a fourth accusation of sexual abuse of a minor including abuse of authority which had taken place in June 2004.
The Prosecutor’s Office had asked during the criminal proceedings on Wednesday, September 28 a jail sentence of six (6) years For C.C.H. The Prosecutor’s Office deemed it proven from the investigation code named Clover that the suspect actively groomed his victims through chats, took them out with permission of the parents, bought them gifts and took them to a secluded property of his. The suspect abused the trust the minors had in him as a school principal
