Ernesto Quinote appeared unrepresented in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court today where he was read one count of common assault and one count of threat of damage to property.
Quinote was accused of pushing his sister and throwing a stick at her as they argued on Sunday, March 27. During the altercation, he also threatened to burn her house down.
