Sentencing delayed for Portmore serial rapist

The sentencing of Chaddane Harris, who confessed to raping and terrorising women in a series of incidents in Portmore, St. Catherine, has been postponed until July 28. 
 
Last month, the 28-year-old gym instructor pleaded guilty to rape and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition when he appeared in the St. Catherine Circuit Court. 
 
When the matter was called up Friday morning, Harris's attorney Vincent Wellesley informed the court that he needed additional time to respond to the prosecutor's written submission which he received on Tuesday. 
 
During the last hearing, the judge instructed the prosecutor to make a submission on how Harris should be sentenced. 
 
Harris, who was captured in 2019, pleaded guilty to six counts of rape, four counts of grievous sexual assault, nine counts of burglary and larceny and wounding with intent after he stabbed one of his victims. 
 
Investigators reported that from 2014 to 2019, Harris targeted single women by breaking into their homes and sexually assaulting them at knife point.
