Policeman Walks from Unlawful Sex Charge

Rupert Thomas

Thirty-five-year-old Rupert Thomas was released from a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse dating back to 2013. The Seine Bight resident, a police officer for nine years, was accused of raping a minor who was a month shy of her sixteenth birthday. But the now twenty-year-old complainant took the stand in the Dangriga Supreme Court and said she does not want to testify against Thomas. The Crown chose to enter a nolle pros which discontinues the case against Thomas until it has sufficient evidence to proceed. The judge released Thomas, who was on interdiction, shortly thereafter. In court, Thomas was represented by Senior Counsel, Attorney Simeon Sampson.

    Belize Justice System, thanks for letting a child predator loose. It doesn’t matter if she doesn’t testify against him, if she was 15 at the time and under age, period. Hopefully your daughter isn’t one of his future victims.
