Remanded for Nasty Sexual Assault on Child

Franz Hamilton

A fifty-six-year-old man was slapped with a single charge of sexual assault upon a seven-year-old child.  Franz Hamilton was remanded to prison today when he appeared in court to answer to a sexual assault charge after he touched a child on the bottom.  The child, in the presence of her mother, informed a social worker and the police that she was at a home in Belize City back in January when Hamilton placed his hands in her underwear and touched her bottom. The minor claimed that the January incident isn’t the first time Hamilton touched her inappropriately.  In court, Hamilton, who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to the charge.  He was denied bail on the grounds that the case is a sensitive one involving a young child and that Hamilton knows where the victim lives and he may interfere with the child.  Hamilton was remanded until April nineteenth.
