Father in Kidnapping Case Released and at Home

In an update to a story a few days ago, a father who had been remanded to prison for kidnapping his son to the United States has been released. The little boy is now in Belize with his mother. Evan Kerr’s attorney, Richard “Dickie” Bradley had told News Five after his client’s detention two weeks ago that the child’s mother claimed Kerr did not ask her before taking their son in November. Bradley says his client not only got permission, but that the boy had been in contact with his mom frequently through video calls.  Today, the mother asked that police to withdraw the charge against Kerr since the boy has been returned to Belize and is back in her custody.  Kerr was taken to the magistrate’s court this morning where the charge of Kidnapping was struck out and he was allowed to leave. Kerr, who grew up in Belize and is a former public officer, will be going back to the States with his wife.
