An ex-parte trial for 26-year-old Erwin Adolphus of #15 Tigris Street, Belize City concluded with a guilty verdict on Thursday, July 21, after the accused failed to appear before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith to face his charge.

On August 17, 2014, Adolphus was busted by police with a .22 revolver with no serial number on it. The firearm was empty so police charged him only for keeping an unlicensed firearm. The trial commenced on Thursday but Adolphus failed to show up. Since he was not present at his own trial, Adolphus did not get the chance to challenge the prosecution’s evidence they presented against him. Within two hours the case concluded with a guilty verdict.

Chief Magistrate Smith sentenced Adolphus to five years imprisonment. He was picked up in the afternoon by police and transported to the Belize Central Prison to begin serving his sentence.
