Two Sentenced in Child Prostitution Case

Today two people convicted in the Dangriga Supreme Court in September were sentenced for their role in a case of child prostitution. Justice Antoinette Moore gave Jeffery Perez the maximum sentence of twelve years imprisonment for the crime of “child prostitution” and Petrona Inez Montejo got ten years for “Procuring a child for sexual exploitation.” Viewers may recall that in March of 2019 an investigation conducted by the Anti Trafficking in Person Unit in the Cayo District lead to the duo’s arrest and subsequent charges.
