Alton White and Idolly FraserOn Tuesday, September 3rd, taxi-driver, 49-year-old Alton White and his common-law wife, 34-year-old Idolly Frazer, an employee of Belize Health Care Partners appeared in Magistrate’s court where they were charged with one count of drug trafficking and one count of possession of a controlled drug.

Allegations are that early on that same morning, they were found in possession of 106 grams of cannabis and 11 grams of cannabis, respectively.

In court, White asked the magistrate to please allow him time to explain his situation. He said that he wants to plead guilty to possession because, his common-law wife had no idea what he was doing and that she was not supposed to be home. She was to be at work on that day. Magistrate Leslie Hamilton informed him that the prosecutor would have to check with the DPP’s office to see if they will accept his guilty plea for possession.

After a 5 minutes adjournment, White’s guilty plea for possession was rejected by the DPP’s office and the court prosecutor informed the magistrate that the prosecution will proceed against the couple for drug trafficking.

With hearing that, White told the magistrate once again that he wants to thrown himself to the mercy of the court but not for drug trafficking. He admitted that he had the weed and that if he must plead guilty to drug trafficking, then he would to make his wife go home. He said that the weed was not for selling but for personal use. Hearing that, Magistrate Hamilton told him that he could not accept his guilty plea and entered an equivocal plea of not guilty on his behalf and offered them bail in the sum of $6,000 each plus one surety of the same.
Their case was adjourned for October 14, 2013.
