By BBN Staff: A Maskall Village resident charged with choking his own mother and cursing out a police officer was spared jail time today as he appeared in the Belize City Magistrates Court.

Donald Guevara, 29, wasted no time in pleading guilty as he appeared unrepresented before Senior Magistrate, Tricia Pitts-Anderson.

His mother, 57-year-old housewife Ramira Sabado, told police that her son came home in a drunken state around 2:00 p.m. on Monday, July 26. He began cursing at her, then randomly attacked, grabbing her by the neck and choking her. Afterward, he pushed her and she bumped into a washing machine before falling to the ground and injuring her right hand. She called the police and Guevara started cursing out the responding officer, who then radioed for backup to have him detained.

Guevara had expressed remorse and told the court that he could barely remember what happened as he was drunk at the time, but that he is very much regretful for what he did.

The Senior Magistrate said that she took into account the fact that he immediately pleaded guilty, taking responsibility for his crime as well as showing remorse. She fined him $800 plus $5 cost of court for the harm upon his mother, and another $100 plus $5 cost of court for the profanity towards the responding officer.

He was ordered to pay the fine for harm by October 15, 2021, and the fine for the obscene language by August 31, 2021, or face three months in prison for default for each charge.
