Shopkeeper locked up for Carnal Knowledge

Also in court, a Belize City Shopkeeper, thirty-eight year old Arden Middleton was granted bail of twenty-thousand dollars after being on remand at the Belize Central Prison for five months. In July of this year, Middleton was charged with carnal knowledge for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a fourteen year old girl. The minor told police that she was at a store and had asked Middleton directions to the bathroom when he later entered and had sexual intercourse with her against her will. The teen was examined by a doctor who certified that she was carnally known. While the Prosecutor, Shamilla Williams had opposed bail last week, Justice Herbert Lord heard his application today in the Supreme Court and granted bail on several conditions, including that he surrenders his travel documents and avoid interfering with the complainant and any witnesses, should he default on the conditions, his bail will be revoked. In his bail application, Middleton was represented by Attorney, Hubert Elrington.

    90% I believe this of the girl story. That young girl was looking for a meal ticket, and/or looking for a dreamer. She must had made a mistake and wanted to cover up with a rich man, a soniador !!!
    And what do you expect that I as a dreamer would do? A young thing asking for a bathroom? She was asking to be !****@ !!!!

    Manuel needs to reread his comment and think harder. A fourteen year old girl, be it may, whatever her intentions are should never be raped, as indicated she just wanted to use the bathroom as any other innocent person may need to at some point… it is really pathetic and disgusting to read about Belizean men raping innocent children, her innocence is forever destroyed, you cannot get that back…but what we can do is implement corporal punishment…as they cannot be rehabilitated…and street justice…
