3 year behind bars for Belize City man who sexually assaulted 15 year old

A Belize City Construction Worker was convicted this morning in the Belize City Magistrate for committing an indecent assault upon a fifteen year old girl. Dwight Flowers, who is thirty-seven years older than his victim, was charged with Aggravated Assault of an Indecent Nature for fondling her breast on March twenty-fourth. Flowers was convicted in the courtroom of Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith and sentenced to three years in prison. The girl is now sixteen and in her testimony, she said that it was the second time that Flowers had touched her inappropriately, but that she did not report the first instance.  In his defense, Flowers, who was unrepresented, told the court that the girl fabricated the story against him because of a previous misunderstanding he had with her brother.  But the Chief Magistrate was not convinced and Flowers was found guilty.
