By Anita Nembhard-Flowers: Francisco Figueroa, 56, a Guatemalan national of Burrell Boom, Belize District, will spend six months in prison for a sexual assault that took place more than four years ago.
Figueroa was convicted before Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer of sexual assault upon a child age 6 years 7 months on April 30, 2017.
The child testified in camera that Figueroa kissed her on her lips and then touched her in her private area.
Chief Magistrate Fraser in finding Figueroa guilty noted that the evidence before the court was overwhelming against him.
