Monday, August 31, 2015. Orange Walk Bureau Reporting: This morning at the Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court, disgraced Area Representative for the OW East Constituency Marco Tulio Mendez, flanked by his attorney Andrew Bennett re-appeared in court for a preliminary hearing.11948290_10207103438845016_900306597_n

That hearing however, took a drastic turn when an additional charge of Carnal Knowledge was made against him, adding to the six charges of aggravated assault; four charges for one minor and two for the other minor, back in February.

Today, his attorney Andrew Bennet told BMG that because of this additional charge, the case has weakened for the prosecution since police are still investigating the matter.

On Mendez’s part, he could not state much other than that he was “shocked and surprised” of the additional charges.

Bennet stressed that his client will be freed of all the charges. Mendez is to reappear in Court on October 27th, 2015.

We’ll keep following this story for the latest developments as it unfolds.
