Harris pleaded guilty in March to six counts of rape, four counts of grievous sexual assault, nine counts of burglary, and one count of wounding with intent.

The absence of a psychiatric report has again delayed the sentencing of St Catherine serial rapist Shadane Harris.

Harris, who the police said sexually assaulted several women between 2014 and 2019, was scheduled to be sentenced in the St Catherine Circuit Court today.

However, the matter could not proceed because the report was still not yet submitted.

Sentencing was then rescheduled to February 3, 2023.

Harris pleaded guilty in March to six counts of rape, four counts of grievous sexual assault, nine counts of burglary, and one count of wounding with intent.

The acts were reportedly committed while the then gym instructor used his motor vehicle to operate a taxi at night.
