Santos CarvajalOn Tuesday, March 12th a Special Constable appeared in Magistrate's Court in Belize City before Chief Magistarte Anne Marie Smith where he was charged with having sexual intercourse with an 11-year-old girl.

50-year-old Santos Carvajal, a resident of #33 Fairweather Street in Belize City, appeared before the Chief Magistrate, where he was charged with a single count of unlawful carnal knowledge. No plea was taken from Carvajal since the matter is an indictable offense. Through his attorney, Brian Neal,  Carvajal requested bail but it was denied since bail cannot be offered on offenses such as carnal knowledge. He was then remanded to prison until April 25th, 2013.

The child told police that sometime in March of last year, she visited Carvajal’s home in Belize City to learn to play chess and that’s when he had sexual intercourse with her.

In court, Carvajal explained that he is being set up for the crime as it in fact the girl's uncle who should be charged and not him.
The child, who is now going on 13, is now pregnant.
