Stanwell Bernardez Sentenced to 3 Years for Child Molesting

Stanwell Bernadez

A three-year old girl was molested while inside her home and the man who police say did it, pleaded guilty today in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court for the offense of aggravated assault of an indecent nature upon the child. Twenty-three year old Stanwell Bernardez, a mason of Antelope Street Extension in Belize City, is tonight spending his first night behind bars having taken a guilty plea. The child’s mother told the police that on July eight at about one o’clock in the morning, Bernardez molested the child. She woke up to find him with the girl in their living room. He had been invited by her common-law husband to spend the night since he had been socializing with them until late. The mother took the child back to bed, and it was not until later in the morning that she began to complain of pain on her private parts. A doctor classified her injuries as harm.

Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser sentenced Bernardez to a three year jail term.
