B.T.L. employee charged with knocking out 3 teeth of woman

Bernard Bent

Forty-five year old Bernard Bent, a senior employee of B.T.L., was charged with grievous harm and remanded to Hattieville Prison, after he was found guilty of beating up an acquaintance.  He told the court that on February twentieth of this year, twenty-five year old Kendra Henkis attacked him and he retaliated, whilst under the influence of alcohol. Henkis told the court that she was at a shop on Seagull Street when Bent approached her and they got into a quarrel. Henkis, who was punched in the face, suffered a broken right cheek bone and lost three teeth.  Chief Magistrate, Ann Marie Smith remanded Bent at the Belize Central Prison until December sixteenth, when his fate will be determined. Bent faces a jail term of five to seven years.

    I would love for all the negative ppl to mind their own business because you dont knw what happen nobody knws only them and god.Excuse me mr martinez dont you think my dad have ppl too but unfortunately our family is not known to violence moreover what you want her brothers to do kill my dad dont think so cause there is the right way to handle situation like this.If you think that retaliating is an option then it will never end sir.your an adult rite you should knw this.what my dad did was wrong he knws that because he has three daughters whom he love and never one day laid a finger on them.who are any of you to judge my father let god do dat and to be honest he`s a dawm good father.i could testify to that he aint no coward or whatever negative anyone has to say he is a man.Ppl need to stop judge cause they dont knw him.PPl will always be ppl cant change that.they will always want to condemn and belittle you but dont let those ppl get to you cause then you may become what they want you to be.he isn`t loved any lesser than he already did.If you cant say anything positive then say nothing at all.

  14. JG says:

    1) Loose control>>>>>lose control
    2) too to tangle>>>>>>>two to tango
    3) the use of curse words and threats is not becoming of a lady, if that s the environment you and ur bro grew up in, no wonder he lift up his hand to strike the woman. unu sung fighta!

  15. Beautiful says:

    I totally agree with you JG…But in reality them kindah man neva change!He musy dah UNIBAM uno dah fightah fi tru!!!fighta people uno a get no where acting like idiots!!!All a uno grow up!!!Even if she was wrong he have no right to put a hand on a woman!!!WOMAN!Unless he is a fag!!!

  16. Kendra Friend says:

    forty-five less twenty five… do the maths. If he was cheated on damn he deserve it. Mien he should respect himself and find a woman in his age. Dah… thoroughly understand why he have to play santa and then get played. As the song says….. one man wah pay the bill, one man wah build the house and hey young man not old man wah laid the pipe. Lol and stop all this unnecessary bickering. love you all

  17. CONCERNED says:

    I totally agree with you JG. These family members and friends who have commented on the story sounds just as ignorant and dim-witted as the accused ;Bernard Bent. I know nothing of the situation apart from what was shared to (us) by the media.
    1. He is 45 yrs old- he has no business sleeping with a woman almost twice his age… that individual can be his chid. He wanted to be a SUGAR DADDY!!!!…. She may be a a gold digger and all the names his family may have called her. However, it gives him no right to hit a woman.. Simply Walk away.
    2.One person stated for us to mind our own business. Unfortunately, BRENDESH/DESHON your bro/dad comitted an act/crime that allowed everyone to be in his business; hence he was charged.
    As previously mentioned, I know none of these individuals. Nonetheless, the charges should stand as there are consequences for actions. As the great Sir Isaac Newton’s third law of physics states : For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
