Sorry he beat him up, court says pay $1000

Julian Cowling

A Belize City man got off with a light fine today for beating another man on Coney Drive on Tuesday. Twenty-three year old Julian Cowling appeared before Magistrate Dale Cayetano today and pleaded guilty to a single charge of wounding. According to reports, he and another man attacked and beat up Eric Clarke while on Coney Drive. The second man involved in the attack was not identified. In his defense Cowling told the Magistrate that he was deeply sorry because he was frustrated and over-reacted. The Magistrate accepted that explanation and instead of giving him jail time let him off with just a thousand dollar fine.
