Belize City Man Charged for Rape of Minor

Roger Rivera

A man was arraigned before Magistrate Aretha Ford in Belize City today on a charge of rape upon a fifteen-year-old girl. The man is accused of forcibly having sexual intercourse with the girl last week Friday at her mother’s house. Initially, Roger Rivera was charged with sexual assault upon the girl, but following further investigations, police upgraded the charge to rape. Magistrate Ford remanded Rivera to prison until August seventh, when he is to return to court.  He was represented by attorney Leo Bradley Junior.
