San Pedro Businessman Arraigned For Rape of Minor

Alfonso Wiltshire

Tonight a well-known San Pedro resident is behind bars after he was arraigned last week Friday for the rape of a minor. Even though we report on many incidents of rape and all of them are distasteful, this one is right up there with the worst. President of the San Pedro Taxi Association, Alfonso Wiltshire, fifty, is accused of forcibly raping a thirteen year old girl at least five times, once by allegedly holding a gun to her head. According to sources in the police, Wiltshire, who owns an apartment building on the island, would use his keys to enter the room of the victim when her mother was not there. He would then rape her and allegedly threaten to kill her if she told anyone.  News Five has confirmed through multiple sources that the minor was too afraid to tell anyone.  But the victim’s five year old sister witnessed one of those terrible violations and told her mother, and that is when the matter was reported to Police. They immediately launched an investigation and things ramped up into high gear late last week when Police got wind of information that Wiltshire planned to flee the island. They locked down the airstrip and departure points and then moved in to arrest the businessman and taxi-driver on Thursday. Wilshire was arraigned on Friday after Police received the results of a medical examination which confirmed that the minor had been carnally known. The alleged predator was remanded to the Belize Central Prison, but police tell us that the investigation is ongoing. They believe that Wiltshire may have used his landlord status to target victims between the ages of ten and fourteen. Police are appealing for victims of the predator, or anyone with information, to get in touch with them as soon as possible.

    Well…if “IF” he did it let him pay according to law.
    But what “IF” he really did NOT do it and it was a frame up?
    See how easily any… ANY man can suffer mercilessly at the hands of a few along with the law?
    EASILY, EASILY, what if “IF” the child`s mom and dad just had it against him?
    Just train the child to do as they tell her to do!
    So what about the doctor`s findings?
    THAT DOCTOR`S FINDINGS IS NO PROOF THAT ANY PARTICULAR PERSON DID IT, IT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE BY THE CHILD`S DAD ALSO!!!
    ANY DNA EXPERT AROUND?
