Honduran national, 48 years, remanded for touching 9 year old

There are growing reports of sexual abuse against minors. Forty-eight year old Honduran national, Jose Aquino, is the latest person to be remanded to prison following an allegation that he molested a nine year old girl.  Aquino is being accused of touching the underage girl inappropriately in her private parts. On Tuesday, he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer and was remanded to the Belize Central Prison following arraignment for a single charge of aggravated assault of an indecent nature.  Aquino, who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to the offense but due to his uncertain immigration status in Belize, Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer denied him bail and remanded him to prison until July tenth.  The alleged incident occurred this past Monday in Belize City.

    I’d like to know whether the perpetrator is here legally, and whether he has similar offenses in Honduras?

    In any event, when, oh, WHEN will GOB enact a law requiring convicted sexual predators to be castrated so they cannot repeat their crimes?
