High School Principal acquitted of aggravated assault charge

denroy tillett

The principal of Belmopan Comprehensive School, Denroy Tillett, was acquitted today of Aggravated Assault of an Indecent Nature upon a school warden. Legal Aid Attorney, Phillip Palacio, made a no case submission, when the prosecutor’s two main witnesses did not show up to testify. The submission was upheld by Magistrate Adolph Lucas Junior because there was no other evidence against Tillett. The school warden had claimed that was standing at the door to Bursar’s office when she felt someone touch her inappropriately. She says that when she turned around, she saw Tillett standing nearby, but never saw him touch her. But Palacio argued that Tillett was holiday when the alleged incident occurred in November, 2010. The prosecution could not prove otherwise and that also contributed to the acquittal.

    I knew it Mr Tillett. I knew that the accusations against you were false. The accusations were out of character and I did not believe them from the time the story broke.

    Sorry that they embarrassed you publicly dude. That was the sole intention and nothing more.

    Can we do a thorough investigation on the front end so that we can stop clogging the courts with BS cases. This was a total waste of time & resources. Good job, Philip.

    I’m real happy that Mr Tillett was vindicated.Crab in a bucket syndrome as usual.Always trying to bring down the ones that are making a difference. She knows fully well why she didn’t show up in court. They now need to prosecute her for wrongfully accusing this man and almost ruining his good name.

  6. The Educated One says:

    @ Corf…you have a point. Wrongfull accusation charges. She wasted the court’s time and resources. She should pay. It will also stop all these False claims from being made….A fine is necessary. Generate some Income for the court system. I’m just saying…lol
