Special Constable remanded for carnal knowledge


Santos Carvajal

A special constable is in trouble with the law following a report by a primary school girl alleging that he had sexual intercourse with her in March 2012, when she was only eleven years and four months of age. The girl is now twelve years old and pregnant. The constable identified as fifty year old Santos Carvajal, of Belize City, appeared this morning before the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith along with his attorney Bryan Neal. Carvajal was slapped with a single count of unlawful carnal knowledge.  The incident is said to have occurred in March 2012 when she visited the special constable at his home where she had gone to learn to play chess. Carvajal told the court that he is being set up and that it is an uncle of the child who should be charged. This afternoon, Neal’s request for bail for Carvajal was not entertained since offenses such carnal knowledge, do not carry bail and he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until April twenty-fifth,  when he is to go back to court.

    DNA testing can solve this case 100% accurately. Test the baby, test the defendant, and test the uncle if necessary. Someone deserves to be castrated and die in prison for this horrific offense.

  2. Storm says:

    Follow up: the math doesn’t add up, if the girl claims to have had intercourse in March last year, and she is still pregnant 12 months later. But if she is pregnant now, that is absolute proof of the crime, and DNA will tell us who the criminal is.

    Hang him hang him high.

    1. that she is pregnant is as relevant to the case as that she wears her hair in braids.
    2. whether mister carvajal is guilty or not, whenever his name is googled after this he can kiss his good graces goodbye.
    3. the gun and the statutory rape laws of Bze are inimical to the dignity of the ordinary mind-his-own-business Joe.
    4. you can’t get away from the gun law but you can make sure not to be alone in the same abode with any minor, male or female, for any period of time, because later ‘a no wah hear no !@$$.’

    @Storm, good observation. She’s now pregnant for 12 months and still going strong? Wow, breaking world record! I think there’s more to be revealed.

    how di R#$$ dis lee gyal weh still pregnant..from march 2012 to march 2013… jaja…somebody needs to get their info straightend out

    The girl needs to be careful, when the baby is born there will be no doubt who the father/criminal/pervert is. If the girl accidentally disappears before that maybe the case disappears, too. Is the real father Carvajal, or the uncle, or someone else?

    That is so stupid, we need to get those kids parents accountable for their actions. If it prove that the girl is lying then the family should compensate the man and if the man is guilty then he is to spent life in jail for an eleven years old. On a whole there should be no reason for a man to be in a house with a child not his as something is not right. Keep away from children and try to have someone around this also go to teachers and doctors as they will tell lies and the Police just have to do their job. Now for the gun law that is b s they need to do something about it like if there is a party who willing to testify who the gun or ammo belong to let them talk and have a trial right away. We have innocent people going to jail where they loose their jobs and even suffer in prison.

    Sometimes a girl would tell a lie in confusion to try to solve her situation.
    I have surely witnessed an instance in which a pregnant girl was trying to save her ..someone`s skin, and she accused someone else, that I CAN PROVE THAT IT DID HAPPEN.
    So, who knows the real truth, maybe the accused in this case had his moment, perhaps protected himself, but then the girl went on enjoying herself, got pregnant , now finds a high figure to put the HORN ON !!!
    SOMETHING …something tells me that the accused is not the father, but he may… he MAY had had sex with her in the past.

  11. Genotu Rembiuos says:

    Now, what would the court do if it can be PROVED as FACT at the court that the accused had sex with her in the past but that he is not the father?
    Mr. law man please?
