The young man admitted that between August 1 and 31, 2013, he engaged in sexual penetration with a child under the age of 16.
Trial Judge Priya Sewnarine-Beharry also ordered that Clementson undergo a psychological evaluation.
Clementson was represented by Attorney-at-Law Adrian Thompson, while the case for the State was presented by Prosecutors Lisa Cave and Orinthia Schmidt.
