Doehm couple went to bank before they went to jail

A photograph of Anke Doehm has been making the rounds on social media. The photo is taken from afar, but it shows Anke lining up inside the Belize Bank. When we contacted Attorney Dickie Bradley about this photo, he offered that if the Doehms were in the bank, there would be nothing improper and illegal about it because they are entitled under proper escort and security to access their funds providing there was a removal order from the court. In this case, they would have been allowed to withdraw funds in order to pay a court fine imposed when they were originally arrested in the ongoing investigation in the death of their daughter thirteen-year old Faye Linn Cannon. That charge was for a small quantity of a controlled drug – about point one seven ounces – found in their condo in the island. When they appeared at the San Pedro court, Anke pleaded not guilty, while David, who holds permanent residency, pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of a controlled drug, Diazapam, which is essentially valium used for anxiety disorders, alcohol withdrawal and muscle spasms.  David was charged one hundred and eighty five dollars and this is money he needed to pay the fine. Following that charge they were transferred to Belize City.

Bradley told News Five that the Doehms were taken to the bank under police escort earlier in the week before they were charged with “Cruelty to a Child.” Bradley confirmed that tonight they are behind bars at the Central prison pending a bail application before the Supreme Court next week. Police, in the meantime, continue to collect information on the death of Faye Linn who died of compression to the chest. A post mortem also confirmed that she had been sexually and physically abused and there were other significant injuries.  The Director of Public Prosecutions told the court on Thursday in Belize City that “We don’t very often see this degree of criminality. The observation section of the post mortem report reads like a horror story and the doctor says, of course with the caveat that we don’t want to try the case here, but that he observed fresh injuries, old injuries and all of them significant injuries.”

    they should be jailed for at least 20 yrs for cruelty. How can they do this to a child. They have no mercy on a child. I hope that no one leave a child again under their care.
