Alleged Child Predator Free Pending Investigation

Chester Williams

A registered sex offender from California, who is now living in the Lake Independence area of Belize, is still walking around free despite heinous allegations being made against him in the United States. The forty-three year old is from San Diego, California, but it is not known when he entered the country or how long he has been living in the area. On Tuesday night, reports surfaced that for some time now, several minors had been seen inside his house on Police Street. But there is at least one allegation from a very young boy, who is claiming that the man forced him, and other young boys, to perform sexual acts in exchange for noodles.  We won’t release the alleged predator’s name at this time, but we can confirm that in California, he was convicted of the offence of oral copulation with a minor under fourteen years of age.  The Police Department has come under some fire for what is seen as a failure to act on that most disgusting and disturbing allegation of child molestation, since the person accused was only briefly detained and then released. Today, Police are still conducting their investigation, and will not act until that investigation is concluded.

 

Sr. Supt. Chester Williams, Regional Commander, Eastern Division South

“Each story has three sides—yo have your side, my side and the truth—and I do not want to venture into any back and forth with anybody who may have information or allegation against the police. But the police work on information and if information does not come into the police so that he police can effectively investigate a matter, then the police hands are tied. Like you rightly said, the allegation, if it is true, is a very serious one and I will tell you that the police will not sit idly by and see that be swept under the rug. That will not happen if the allegations are true. Hence the reason why there must be an investigative process. I have directed my investigators along with the person in charge of domestic violence unit; they have now teamed up with Human Development officers in the area canvassing to see if they can find any children or child who may have been victim of this alleged child molester. We have interviewed one person, one child per say; that child has given us certain information which again we are still probing into that allegation to ensure that there is credibility to the allegation; one….because at the end of the day, due to the nature of the offense, we want to ensure that when we move that we have sufficient to be able to arrest and charge somebody. So the investigation is still in its infantry stage and as soon as it is through or we have obtained the level of evidence that we think we need to be able to effect an arrest, then we will inform the media as to the progress of that investigation.”

    But what isn’t clear is how a criminal…a CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER reached into Belize in the first place? As part of his being free in the US he is to report his change of address whenever he moves SO WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE!!! Don’t we have enough criminals of our own to be letting in these scums of the earth to ruin our Belizean children’s lives!!! We’re failing our children when we let them fall victim to these child predators. Something seriously needs to be done about the caliber of “tourist” we have entering into this country.

    Instead of harassing the Cuban immigrants you all should be focusing on these American Predators.There is no way a Belizean Citizen who has been accused of such crime in the USA be freed pending investigations.Only in Belize,this is the reason why all these predators are living in the Jewel.They all Know that the Jewel is corrupt and lawless.That’s what these idiots do travel to so called third world countries and exploit people.But yet they want to tell everybody how to live.

    >>it is not known when he entered the country or how long he has been living in the area.

    What are the possibilities?

    1) he is a Belizean citizen, coming back to find little jewels. The USA is cramping his style.
    2) Bought a UDP passport or visa like Wong Hong & Mello, and enjoys what Belize has to offer.
    3) overstayed his tourist visa, now blending in with local pedophiles, trading contacts.
    4) snuk in across the border in the middle of the night, because he would be kicked out.
