Cop Remanded for Carnal Knowledge

Patrick O’Brien

But in the south, there’s a complicated story in Independence village which we’ve been following for the past week – one which involves a Policeman, a minor, and to some extent, a jealous wife. Independence Police haven’t had much to say when we’ve contacted them, but we note that the Police sitrep for today does mention that Police Constable Patrick O’Brien is detained at the Independence Police Station pending a charge of unlawful carnal knowledge. Tonight, we can confirm that he was charged and has actually been remanded to the Belize Central Prison until April thirtieth.  From what we’ve been able to piece together, the Police Constable had sex with a fifteen year old minor in June 2014, a month before she turned sixteen. It probably wouldn’t have come to light, except that the Policeman’s wife allegedly found nude pictures of the minor on his phone and decided to post them on Facebook recently. That’s when a report reached the Ministry of National Security which called in the Commissioner. He in turn commissioned an investigation by the Professional Standards Branch of the Police, and that led to Patrick O’Brien being charged for carnal knowledge today. Nobody has been able to verify if any charges are being contemplated against O’Brien’s wife, who posted the nude pictures of the minor on Facebook. O’Brien, we are told, is also under investigation for allegations that he and other Policemen have been running a wood-stealing racket in the South. No charged have yet been laid for that offence.
