By Aaron Humes: Tonight, a handyman of Ladyville is on remand at the Belize Central Prison, charged with one count of unlawfu sexual assault upon a minor who he is alleged to have touched inappropriately whilst on a family outing at the river.
35 year old Artimo Ogaldez was denied bail and remanded to prison after appearing before Chief Magistrate Ann-Marie Smith.
He pleaded not guilty but due to the prevalence of the crime of unlawful sexual assault upon minors, the prosecutor objected to bail. Ogaldez returns to court on June 1, 2016.
The minor reported to police that whilst in the water, Ogaldez, who she knows, came up to her and grabbed her then touched her private area.
