Belize City Man Faces 6 Counts of Sexual Offenses

Keshane McDougal

Twenty-two year old Keshane McDougal, the brother of a cop, is facing slew of additional charges for unlawful sexual intercourse. When he appeared in court this morning, his attorney, Herbert Panton asked the court to discharge McDougal of the first charge since he had not received disclosure and ninety days has elapsed since he was charged. Instead, he was slapped with five new charges for unlawful sexual intercourse upon a minor. That brings the total counts to six against McDougal. And since he was already out on Supreme Court bail granted to him in March when he was first arraigned, he was free to go and is due back in Court on July fifth, 2016.  The minor first alleged sexual encounter against the fourteen year old girl for which he is charged occurred in January 2016 of this year. She claims that while in Belize City, on January twelfth, 2016, McDougal abused her sexually at a home he was staying.   The minor also alleges that McDougal raped her on December twelfth, 2015, when she was only thirteen years old, then again on December nineteen, and December twenty-eight, 2015, the other two instances occurred on January eighth and on January eleventh, 2016.
