A 42-year-old fisherman, whose identity cannot be revealed, was arraigned in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Monday, May 7, 2018 on one count of incest. This man was accused of a sexual crime against his daughter and as a result, he was only read the indictable offense of incest. No plea was taken since the matter can only be tried in the Supreme Court.

The act is said to have occurred in December 2017 but was just recently reported to the police. The 13-year-old child was accompanied by her mother to the police station where she reported that when she went to visit her father, he had sexual intercourse with her.

Due to the nature of the offense, the accused was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until August 7, 2018.
