Found NOT Guilty of $40,000 theft

William Stevens

A jury today returned a not guilty on five counts of Theft against Belize City resident, twenty-four year old William Steven, an ex-employee of Caye Bank International Limited. Steven was accused of stealing forty-three thousand dollars from the bank. Prosecutor, Triennia Young, called as many as eight witnesses, including the Steven’s ex-girlfriend Neima Gomez, Joy Flowers, the Executive Vice-President of Caye International Bank along with two other employees of the bank as well as the investigating Officer, Sgt. Leslie Wade. They all testified on financial transactions involving Stevens, but in his defense, he claimed that the bank had loaned him the money. The two week trial ended late this evening when the jury found him not guilty.

    Sounds like a darned stupid jury to me, or a corrupt one.

    If it is a “loan” as Steverns claimed, where is the loan document, how much interest did Stevens agree to pay, what collateral did he give, and when is he going to repay it?

    Have we lost all commonsense, decency, and justice?

    If it was a “loan” as Stevens claimed [and is that a new offence of perjury?], here are some pertinent questions:

    Where is the loan document he signed?

    How much interest is he going to pay?

    What collateral did he pledge?


    I think this is just another example of Belizeans losing all touch with decency, commonsense, and justice.

    Hey people, it could be an informal loan by his managers. Perhaps, the executives were incompetent.
