Dude punched his ex girlfriend

Albert Wade Jr.

Twenty-four year old Albert Wade junior, a construction worker of a Belize City address, pleaded guilty to a charge of common assault today, following an altercation during which he allegedly punched his ex-girlfriend in the mouth.  Wade, who was being escorted to the Belize Family Court on a child support matter, was involved in a physical altercation with twenty-four-year-old Mara Hernandez this morning.  Hernandez was socked once in the mouth, causing a cut wound to the lower lip.  In court this afternoon, Wade, who appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Clive Lino, was arraigned on a single count.  Wade told the magistrate that while he lunged at Hernandez, who was reportedly making fun of him, he did not hit her.  Despite his protest, the first-time offender was given a non-custodial sentence and was fined five hundred dollars, two hundred of which must be paid upfront or in default he will spend two months in prison.  The balance is to be defrayed by October fourteenth.
