A Belize City man of the Baymen Avenue area in Belize City was accused of molesting a boy under the age of 16. He is 41-year-old Orlando Cho, a laborer. Cho was accused of touching the minor inappropriately on two separate occasions.

The first occasion allegedly took place on July 18, 2017 where the boy was touched inappropriately on his genitals. The second occasion took place later that day, when Cho again touched the minor, this time on both private parts.

In court, the charge was read to Cho who pleaded not guilty. Prosecutor in the case, Cpl. Roman Andrews, had no objection to bail. Despite the prosecution not objecting to bail, Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith denied him bail due to the fact that the accused and the victim live near each other. As a result, he was remanded to prison until September 29, 2017.
