He was remanded in custody during his last appearance in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.
Taylor, police say, had numerous sexual encounters with his young neighbour for about a year, and a medical report which was presented to the court by the prosecution showed that the boy had been severely injured during the activity. Taylor is also accused of trying to force the teenager to perform oral sex on him.
After reading the incident report, Resident Magistrate Martin Gayle, who presided over the matter last week, remarked on what appeared to be a sustained period of abuse.
"It would appear that this has been going on a long, long time," the RM said.
"Then you never know that this was going on?" the visibly upset RM then asked of the victim's mother.
"No, sir, only one time I see him clothes blood up," the woman replied.
Taylor's action became public knowledge after the victim's grandmother became curious when the boy went missing for a few hours. When he was seen returning from Taylor's house, the elderly woman became suspicious that he had been smoking ganja and questioned him. After he was roughed up by his mother, the boy told his grandmother of the sexual encounters between Taylor and himself.
Taylor was arrested at his Greenwich Town address by Detective Corporal Cecil Lawrence of the Denham Town police station.
The accused man has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
