Sentenced to 18 months for indecent assault

Salvador Marlon Carballo

It’s only been a week since thirty-eight year old Salvador Marlon Carballo was released from jail, but tonight he is back behind bars to serve an eighteen month jail term.  Carballo appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith this afternoon and was charged for Aggravated Assault of an Indecent Nature and Threatening Words on a twenty year-old woman. She alleges that just after midnight last Sunday, she was walking on Morning Glory Street in Belize City when Carballo, who also goes by the name of “Salva”, grabbed her from behind and began to choke her.  According to the woman, Carballo attempted to take off her tights and when she made attempts to scream for help, he continued to choke her. The woman claims she got away, but the following day, Carballo threatened to kill her. And that’s when she headed to the nearest police station to make a report. Carballo pleaded guilty, but begged the court to impose a fine since he has just been released from prison.  In an explanation, Carballo told the Chief Magistrate that it was the young lady who asked to go to his house to change her pants and that he never touched her. The Chief Magistrate sentenced him to eighteen months imprisonment for the Indecent Assault and six months for Threatening Words. When Carballo heard his sentence, he threw himself down on the bench in court and began to cry uncontrollably saying he just got out of jail.
