Bert Vasquez, charged with indecent assault, gets bail

A Belize City businessman, who has been in prison since February fourteenth, was released on bail despite objections from the D.P.P.’s office, which was represented by Crown Counsel Triennia Young. Young submitted that twenty-seven year old Bert Vasquez is a flight risk and more importantly, that he might interfere with the victim. But Attorney Ellis Arnold argued that the prosecutor was unable to support any of the grounds for the objections and Justice Herbert Lord granted Vasquez bail of ten thousand dollars with five conditions. Those include that he surrenders his travel documents, avoids any contact with the victim or potential witnesses and reports to the clerk of court three times a week. Vasquez is charged with Aggravated Assault of and Indecent Nature, Aggravated Assault with a Pocket Knife and Unlawful Imprisonment for an incident that allegedly occurred on January twenty-fifth. A twenty year old Accountant told police that she was walking on Freetown Road and Vasquez offered her a ride home took her to Belama Phase four, saying that he had to pick up a cousin. Vasquez allegedly held a pocket knife to her head then started to remove her clothing and kiss her. She fought him and he eventually stopped when several vehicles started passing the area. But Vasquez allegedly took her to mile twelve where he attempted to assault her again, but stopped because someone flashed a light in the vehicle.

    Convicted sex offenders should be castrated to prevent future offences.

    If this allegation is proven to be true, I hope this “animal” has a chance to meet big Bubba in prison! What a worthless P.O.S!

    While this is not a capital case which suggests that bail should be an option. If I remember correct;y, the alleged perp has a history of this behavior & there is no reason to believe that he will not attempt to intimidate his victim, no matter what his lawyer says. On the other hand, maybe he has victimized enough women & someone will help our judiciary out & make sure he never goes to trial or assault another woman.

    This guy will never learn. He has been in trouble so many times. Sadly, I know this individual, and I don’t doubt what the victim is saying. Mr. Vasquez has some serious issues, more mental than anything. He needs help and he needs to do jail time and some type of rehabilitation because he is a pathological liar. Good luck to the victim and it would be a shame if Mr. Vasquez isn’t taught a lesson.

    Dis bally yah so get away in the past for doing the same thing! He is a con-man and a compulsive liar indeed. He needs to be locked away and prosecuted to the full extent of the law for all his money laundering and cheque fraud crimes that he committed not to mention the countless young women that he has been preying on and victimizing. Damn Rapist!
