PC Nelson Ramos in Jail for Sexual Assault of Teenage Girl

Another cop is trouble with the law. Police Constable Nelson Ramos is on remand at the Belize Central Prison after being charged for a sexual offense involving a minor.  The officer, who is attached to the Intermediate Southern Formation, was accused by a seventeen-year-old girl of forcing her into a sexual act against her will.  Last Thursday, Ramos was arraigned in the magistrate’s court and placed on pretrial detention before returning to court on October thirteenth.  Superintendent Dwayne Sutherland, Officer Commanding the Professional Standards Branch, says that Ramos had been acquitted of a previous incident in which he reportedly drew a firearm on a tourist.

“With respect to the report made by the seventeen-year-old female in Independence Village on July 6th, 2020, that investigation resulted in the detention and charging of police constable Nelson Ramos who is attached to the Independence Police Station.  He was arraigned on Thursday, July 16th, 2020 where he was remanded until his next court appearance which will be on October 13th, 2020.”

“Sir, in the case of Mr. Ramos, how is the Professional Standards Branch reacting to the fact that Ramos had been charged before for something as serious as pulling a gun on a tourist and he was given a chance to return to being a police officer and then he does something like this?”

 

Supt. Dwayne Sutherland

“Well those charges, he got off from those charges and so he was accepted back to work and he was posted in Independence Village, but he was acquitted of those charges.”
