Mauricio Lemus Charged With Aggravated Assault upon His Mother

Mauricio Lemus

A Belize City man was taken before Magistrate Aretha Ford this afternoon to face a charge of Aggravated Assault upon his mother, after he allegedly raised a pickaxe with which to hit her. The prosecution alleges that on March fifth, 2020, Mauricio Lemus went home on Banak Street and asked his mother Maria Enriquez for twenty dollars and when she told him she could only give him, he flew into a rage and tried to hit her with a pickaxe.  But, according to the prosecution, Enriquez’s common-law husband ran to her rescue and prevented Lemus from assaulting his mother. Lemus denied the allegation, telling the court that he never asked for the money and that he would never assault his mother.  He entered a not guilty plea and was granted bail of one thousand dollars on the condition that he must move out of the house. Lemus promised to relocate to East Collet Canal.
