A Belize City man walks free when the crown enters a nolle pros

Ron Myvette

An attempted murder case stemming back from August of 2014 which was committed to stand trial in 2016 against a Belize City man ended in a nolle prosequi today. Ron Myvette was charged and granted bail months later in December 12, 2014 for the attempted murder of a well-known street figure, Calbert Budd Junior. Myvette was facing charges of attempted murder, use of deadly means of harm, dangerous harm and grievous harm upon Budd Junior. When it went to trial today, instead of empanelling a jury to hear his case, the crown entered a nolle prosequi and he was free to go. Back in 2014, Budd Junior claimed that after he took his girlfriend to her Iguana Street home he rode his bicycle heading to Central American Boulevard and into Curassow Street where he saw an individual exiting an abandoned lot. He identified the man as Myvette, who he said, he knew for well over fifteen years. Myvette was accused at firing at him and fleeing to the abandoned lot. At the time of the shooting, according to Budd Junior, Myvette was standing eight feet away from him so that he clearly saw his face. But today the case fell apart and Myvett walked.
