Adam Meighan is Arraigned for Rape of U.S. National

A Ladyville resident was taken to court this morning and arraigned for the rape and robbery of a U.S. national. The heinous crime occurred in broad daylight in the Vista Del Mar area last week Thursday. Thirty-one-year-old Adam Meighan was arraigned before Magistrate Albert Hoare. He was unrepresented and after arraignment, he was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison until January eleventh, 2019. The forty-nine-year old American woman reported to police that she was assaulted when she left her house and was getting into her Wingle pick-up truck after nine o’clock. She says her attacker was armed with a machete and he assaulted her when she went to the drivers’ side of her vehicle.  He pushed her into the vehicle, hit her on the face and raped her. He also stole her money and left.  The woman said that she managed to get up and fell into a puddle with mud and water, but managed to drive herself to the K.H.M.H. where she was examined by a doctor.
