Three men fined in court for separate instances of public drinking

By BBN Staff: Three Belize City men were fined for public drinking in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court today.

Eric Bahadur, 58; Samuel Abrego, 23; and Brandon Ramos, 21, were each arraigned individually before Magistrate Audrey Grinage for the single offense of ‘drinking in a public place’, a misdemeanor charge.

The three men were each caught and arrested for public drinking in separate instances but oddly were all caught doing so in the same general area, at the corner of King Street and West Canal.

All three men, in their separate matters, appeared unrepresented in court and plead guilty to their charges. Magistrate Grinage took into consideration that they were each first-time offenders and imposed non-custodial sentences upon them.

Bahadur and Ramos were both fined $25 plus a $5.00 cost of court each, which must be paid by October 29, or in default, one-week imprisonment while Abrego was fined $20 plus a $5.00 cost of court, which he has to pay by October 29 or in default, one week in jail.
