Sodomizer to stand trial for assaulting boy

Lee Henkis

There has been a spate of sexual abuses on minors and in court today a convicted sex offender was committed today to stand trial. Forty-three year old, Lee Henkis will face trial for committing an unnatural crime at the January sitting of the Supreme Court. He is charged for committing an unnatural crime and grievous harm upon a nine year-old boy. The alleged sexual abuse is said to have occurred on July fourth and reported eighteen days later. But Henkis was not arraigned on the charges until September first, 2010 after the victim positively identified him as the person that had sodomized him. A doctor who had examined the young boy classified the injuries as grievous harm.  The victim and his family including his parents and social services personnel were all present in court. They are to appear again on January 17 when the trial is set to begin.  Henkis was unable to meet his bail and was remanded into custody at the Queen Street Police Station.

    I seriously propose that we amend our criminal code to MANDATE that all convicted sexual predators be castrated.

    They will NEVER repeat their crimes.

    these kinds of people needs to be killed, so horrible what they are doing to our children of the future…

  3. CEO says:

    So how will castration be done on women who comit these crimes? Or how will women quilty of these crimes be treated?

    Don’t be hasty! Let’s find the best way to rid our society of these people. My humanity is suggesting the same treatment you suggested but creating a problem to solve another problem is just “one step forward and one step back”.

    There is no treatment or redemption for these predators… Hurt people hurt people! it then becomes a vicious cycle… They prey on the weakest of society, our children… The courts are there to protect us from these criminals, but they are failing us, especially in Belize… God help us all! He is our only salvation…
