Four Years for Burglary of a House on Eve Street

Claudio Gongora

An Orange Walk resident, who was caught red handed burglarizing the home of B.E.L. Administrative Assistant, Andrea Badillo, is tonight serving his first night of a four-year sentence handed down by Senior Magistrate, Aretha Ford this morning. Claudio Gongora was convicted for entering Badillo’s house on Eve Street where neighbours saw him and alerted the police. At his trial, Gongora told the court he was innocent and that the neighbours and the cops were accusing him wrongly and that on the day of the incident they beat him up. He also argued that the home owner could not tell the police who had broken into her house. While Senior Magistrate Ford agreed with Gongora on that point, there was enough evidence to convict him. Gongora is also serving time for handling stolen goods as a result of another burglary.
