Santa Elena man charged for consensual intercourse with minor

9. CRIMESaturday, August 1st, 2015. BMG: A 23 year old Santa Elena man has been arrested and charged for having sexual intercourse with his 15 year old girlfriend on two occasions, most recently just two days ago on July 30, 2015.

The minor, who described her relationship with the 23 year old as being intimate, was checked by a doctor who confirmed that she had consensual intercourse.

As a result, the 23 year old was charged for Unlawful Sexual Intercourse due to the age of the minor; the minimum age of consent to intercourse in Belize is 16.

    Please correct your headline… it cannot be consensual sex if the minor is below the age of consent… ie. 16 years as indicated in your article.. it is basically statutory rape…
