Police Investigate Tricky Rape Claim Against Magistrate

There is a most disturbing allegation being made tonight against an officer of the court, one in which a sitting magistrate is being accused of having committed a sexual offence against a woman.  According to information reaching our newsroom, the magistrate in question purportedly invited the woman to his residence on April eleventh to have a conversation.  Whilst there, he allegedly removed her clothing and instead forcibly engaged in sexual intercourse with her against her will.  The very serious allegation against the lower court judge, who is assigned to the southern jurisdiction, is being investigated by the Belize Police Department.  The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions confirmed with News Five earlier today that the D.P.P. is aware of the report and that the police is in consultation with a crown counsel on the matter.  Charges relating to sexual misconduct, should there be any brought against the judicial officer, would be a first for someone in that capacity.
