Familiar face charged in O.W. rape

Story PictureHe is no stranger to allegations of sexual assault, and today Albert Guy stands accused of another attack. Police in Orange Walk have charged the thirty-eight year old food vendor for the crimes of rape, indecent assault, aggravated assault and harm. The charges are the result of a report made over the weekend by an Orange Walk woman, who told police that Guy offered her a ride in his car. But instead of taking the woman to her destination, he drove to a cane field about ten miles outside of town and forced her to have sex with him. Guy will appear in Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday. If the accused rapist’s name sounds familiar, that’s because it is. On October thirty-first, 2000, Guy allegedly abducted eighteen-year-old U.B. student Tracy Gillett at the Pallotti junction. A bus driver witnessed the incident and subsequently rescued the young woman. Guy was convicted of forcible abduction, threat of death, and harm, and sentenced to eight years in jail. But in 2004 he walked out of the Court of Appeal a free man. His attorney, Hubert Elrington, successfully argued that because the I.D. parade included no other people of East Indian extraction, Guy’s conviction must be overturned and the sentence set aside.
