Dwight FlowersDwight Flowers, 53, a construction worker of Belize City, was convicted on one count of aggravated assault of an indecent nature on Monday, September 23rd.

Flowers appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith to answer to accusations by a 15 year old girl.

On March 24th of this year the girl reported to police that Flowers fondled her breast. The girl said that Flowers did it before but she did not report the incident. After he touched her breast the second time the girl was extremely annoyed and told her older brother. He then took her to the police station where they made a formal report. Flowers was then arrested and charged.

The girl, now 16, testified in court on Thursday, September 19th, and recounted the events of March 24th. Flowers was unrepresented in court. He denied the allegations saying that the girl fabricated the story against him because of a previous misunderstanding he had with the child’s brother. The Chief Magistrate was not convinced with the version given by Flowers and found him guilty of the charge.
Flowers was sentenced to serve three years in the Belize Central Prison.
