55 year old incarcerated for sexual crime upon a girl

Charles Bucknor

Fifty-year-old Charles Bucknor, a carpenter of a Belize City address, remains tonight on lockdown at the Belize Central Prison after being denied bail for committing the crime of aggravated assault of an indecent nature upon a twelve-year-old girl.  It is reported that on Tuesday, Bucknor performed oral sex on the minor.  In court today, Bucknor, who appeared unrepresented, was read a single charge to which he pleaded not guilty.  The court prosecutor, however, objected to bail on the grounds that there is a possibility that Bucknor faces additional charges in connection with the incident.  Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer then told Bucknor that since the case is sensitive, besides the fact that allegations of this nature are prevalent, he would be denied bail.  Bucknor has been remanded until August twenty-ninth, when bail may be considered on his behalf.
