On Monday, January 28th, 42-year-old Mark Anthony Sewell appeared in Magistrate's Court where he was charged with exposing his person in public. He appeared before Magistrate Hettie Mae Stuart where he was additionally charged with one count of threatening words for allegedly threatening his sister-in-law Margaret Sewell. He pleaded not guilty to the offence and told the Magistrate that incident occurred at a yard where his family house is located and that it was his brother’s yard he was in. He said that he had just come to his family yard after coming from sea and that he went to urinate. He also told the magistrate that he never threatened Margaret Sewell. Magistrate Stuart told him that he need not explain himself at this time as he had pleaded not guilty and that the matter will go to trial.

Magistrate Hettie Mae-Stuart offered him bail in the sum of $500 plus one surety of the same amount with conditions that he not interfere with the Seawell and that he must stay 100 yards away from her and if he does not comply with the conditions of his bail, she will revoke his bail and he will be remanded to the Belize Central Prison.
Sewell’s next court date is set for March 7.
