On January 5, 2018 at 8:45 p.m., acting upon information received, police visited a hotel in Belize City where, upon arrival, they met a 16-year-old male in the company of Roy “Bullet” Craig, a 76-year-old taxi operator at the Cinderella Plaza taxi stand, activist, and former millionaire.

The minor reported to the police that about 7:00 p.m. while he was walking home, he saw Craig standing beside a car and as he was about to pass him, Craig held him by his shirt collar and asked him if he wanted to go to a hotel. Craig pulled him towards the front passenger side seat of the car and they both got in the car.

The minor alleged that Craig stopped at an ATM and made a further stop at a restaurant where he purchased some beers. From there he drove to the hotel where he paid for a room where the boy claimed Craig drank some beers and offered some to the minor. The minor reported that Craig later attempted to perform an unnatural act but they were interrupted by a knock on the door.

Craig was arrested and charged for the crime of sexual assault, a charge with landed him in court on Monday, January 8, 2018. Craig spent the weekend in lockdown before he was arraigned in the Belize Magistrate’s Court where he appeared before Magistrate Michelle Trapp.

In court where Craig was unrepresented, he pleaded not guilty to the charge. There was no objection to bail being granted and as a result, bail was offered to him in the sum of $5,000 with the condition that he stays away from the victim and his family.

Craig was able to meet his bail and is due back in court on March 8, 2018.
