By Aaron Humes: 64-year-old Ernesto Caliz is once again accused of sexual assault of a minor, this time a 9-year-old boy whose bottom he kissed.
On Monday Caliz appeared before Magistrate Michelle Trapp where bail was objected to.
The police prosecutor made note that due to the child’s age, he may be traumatized and is in fact previously known to the accused, who may try to interfere with him. Also, this is not the first time that such allegations have been made against Caliz even though he had not been convicted before on the offense.
As conditions of bail, Caliz was ordered to stay away from the child, his relatives, and all prosecution witnesses. He was also ordered to report to the San Pedro Police Station every Friday.
But the Magistrate set bail of $8,000 and two sureties. He is currently on remand at the Central Prison until September 12, and have not yet made bail.
According to the San Pedro Sun, Caliz was arraigned on December 6, 2016 in San Pedro Town after reports were filed of him fondling a three-year-old child. After being denied bail, he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison where he was incarcerated for three days before being granted a Supreme Court bail of $5,000.
