Kadeem Augustine, 19 years old, was accused of beating up his girlfriend during a domestic dispute. Augustine was remanded to the Belize Central Prison for the offense of harm for which he pleaded guilty. He appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza on August 25, 2017.

The incident is alleged to have occurred on Saturday, August 19, 2017 at Mahogany Heights. According to the victim, she was sitting in a house with a friend when Augustine instructed her to leave. After she refused, he hit her to the left side of her face. She still refused to leave and he slapped her once again. Her injuries were observed by a doctor.

Augustine’s sentencing was deferred until August 29, 2017. He again appeared before Magistrate Mendoza where he was represented by attorney Kathleen Lewis. Given that he was a first time offender, he was bounded to peace for one year in default  two months’ imprisonment.
