Irvin Pitts Accused of Rape

Irvin Pitts

An alleged sexual offender was arraigned this morning before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith. Forty-two year old Irvin Pitts was arraigned on a single charge of rape which reportedly occurred on Saturday, April second, 2016. A woman is claiming that around three o’clock that morning, she was sexually abused by Pitts who was transporting her home. The woman whose name will not be disclosed alleges that Pitts first dropped off her sisters and on the way to her house, he diverted to his house leaving her in the vehicle for about thirty minutes. She went looking for him and this is when he ambushed her and forced her into his house, forcing her to perform sexual acts on him. He then took her home and told her not say to anything about the crime. But she did and Pitts was picked up by the police. In court, no plea was taken from Pitts who was unrepresented but due to nature of the offense, he was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until June sixth, 2016.
