Elderly Toledo Man Out on Bail after Incest Accusation

Pedro Pop Ico

A seventy-one-year-old resident of Santa Elena, Toledo is out on bail tonight after more than six months on remand at the Belize Central Prison accused of sexually abusing a child, on more than one occasion. The abuse started when the child was eight years old and continued until she was eleven. Pedro Pop Ico appeared this morning before Supreme Court judge, Justice Denis Hanomansingh and was granted bail in the sum of five thousand dollars.  Ico was given stringent conditions in which he must report to the Bella Vista Police every Friday, remain in the village while his case is before the court, and he must attend all court adjournments and stay away from his young victim.  Ico was charged with three sex offenses committed between the months of July and December 2013, when the child was only eight years old. And then the third time was in December 2014.  Ico was arraigned on the sexual charges back in July 2016, when the matter was reported. He is due back in court April twelfth, 2017.
