Former EP Yorke teacher Acquitted of Carnal Knowledge Charges

Cordel Gonzalez

In late 2009, the then E. P. Yorke Teacher, Cordel Gonzalez, was charged with two counts of Carnal Knowledge upon a fourteen year old student. He lost his job after a video tape surfaced purportedly showing him engaged in a sexual act with the young girl.  But today in court, the charges ended in a nolle prosequi in the courtroom of Justice Adolph Lucas and Gonzalez was set free, for now at least. The case fell apart because the victim, who is now nineteen and living overseas, has difficulties travelling back to Belize and could not testify. Allegations are that on the first and twenty-ninth of November 2009 he had sex with the girl. The school found out and informed the child’s mother who took her daughter to the police to make a report. Gonzalez, however, has been freed of the charges.

    what!!!!!! they have proof, they know he did it, and just let him go… great people
    that’s something else, wow you amazed me, you see justice not always protect the innocent
    and in Belize that is always, never the innocent get the benefit of justice, only money and
    positions are relevant, not justice. I got a question to the judges and that kind of people:
    what happens if your daughter was in that position? so you gladly just let go the perv?
    I know you will seek for justice, but remember you are iin power so practicly you are the
    bad justice
