This week, a jury turned over a verdict in the case against Shawn Primus, a Brooklyn Center man charged with repeatedly forcing a young Burnsville girl to perform oral sex: Guilty.

The case broke in , when Burnsville police were called a home on May 9 on a report of criminal sexual conduct involving a young girl, according to the original criminal complaint.

The child, who turned 10 in March, told authorities that Primus frequently woke her up in the middle of the night, performed oral sex on her and forced her to perform oral sex on him. She said it began in September 2011 and happened about three times a week, most recently on May 6, 2012.

The child said Primus got angry and threatened her if she wouldn’t cooperate or if she refused to perform oral sex on him.

On June 2, his defense attorney, Carolina Lamas, filed a motion to dismiss the case on the grounds that police had insufficient probable cause. Ten days later, Lamas put in a demand for a speedy trial and made a motion to suppress any out-of-court statements, as well as mention of prior convictions, adjudications and arrests.

A jury trial was scheduled for Monday. On Thursday morning, a jury of eight women and four men delivered a guilty verdict. Judge David Knutson has ordered Primus to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation. Primus will be sentenced on Oct. 23. Primus is currently in custody at the Dakota County Jail.

This is so horrible. I feel so bad for that baby having to endure the sh*t that this nigga did. I have been praying for her and as a person pursuing her therapist license, I really do hope that her mother will get therapy for her to help in the process of her healing. This dude cut my boys hair about 3 years ago, and I found him to be disgusting even then, and he couldn't even cut hair. I know this, I had a gut feeling about him even back then and I didn't let my boys out of my sight cause he just seemed shady. Man oh man, he's in for a rude awakening in prison cause he's gonna get it!! Real men in prison don't like child molesters fool!!!

This is sickening!!! Anyone who harms children especially in that way, need to have their penis and balls cut off where they will feel the pain. He will pay for it when he gets to jail because child molesters are the lowest scum bags in prison and somebody will make him their little bitch!! He's a fucking animal!! That girl may be scarred for the rest of her life! Smmfh
