City Resident to be Tried for Unlawful Intercourse with Minor

Gasman Jones

Tonight, twenty-two-year-old Gasman Jones, a Belize City resident is out on bail of two thousand dollars granted to him for the offense of unlawful sexual intercourse after his case ended in a paper committal before Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford.  In August of 2016, Jones was accused of having sex with a fifteen-year-old minor.  Today at his preliminary inquiry, the magistrate accepted documents in the form of statements including one from the virtual complainant as well as from the doctor who examined her and concluded that she was carnally known. The prosecutor, Inspector Hector Rodriguez, is relying on this evidence to prove the sexual assault case against Jones at the Supreme Court.  After the paper committal, Senior Magistrate Ford committed Jones to stand trial at the Supreme Court for the January 2018 session set to commence on January sixteenth, 2018.
