Sexual contacts: unhealthy relationship between a 59-year-old man and a teenager

A 59-year-old man who developed an unhealthy romantic relationship with a 13-year-old boy under his parents’ noses when he was his “nanny” has been convicted of sexual interference.

Hired by the parents of the victim to do odd jobs at their home, Rickey Belziles became the “nanny” of the children with the pandemic and slept regularly at the residence.

The teenager who is in the fourth year of primary school despite his age, has a marked delay, few friends, and has a rigidity that requires a strict routine. The 50-year-old develops a relationship that seems friendly with the teenager and the two regularly discuss his work or common interests on the Messenger application.

The relationship intensifies over the course of the pandemic and Belziles offers his victim to work with him at his various clients. When the curfew was introduced in the winter of 2021, the teenager slept several times at the accused’s apartment.

The accused develops an intimate relationship with his victim, 46 years younger than him, whom he calls “baby love” telling him that he loves him.

Sexual contacts

Exchanges of a sexual nature were also discovered in the text messages. At least three episodes of sexual contact, still at his Quebec home, namely oral sex, took place before Belziles’ arrest.

It was a friend of the victim who found the young man distant and secretive who sounded the alarm. This same friend had also discovered the victim’s messages with sexual connotations with Belziles, which led him to denounce the situation to the parents of the teenager.

The victim was also at the accused’s home when the police went directly to the scene to arrest the 59-year-old man. Belziles pleaded guilty to charges of sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching and communicating with a child under 16 for a sexual purpose.

He will return to court in the fall to receive his sentence.
