By BBN Staff: Twenty-two-year-old Joshua Gillett showed up to court yesterday to answer for two offenses, but had to give an account of why he wasn’t attending court dates for a previous matter before the court.
Gillett appeared unrepresented in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Monday, charged with one count of wounding, and one count of threatening words, and pleaded not guilty to each.
Allegations against him are that prior to his court appearance on Monday he had injured a woman and told her that he would kill her.
There was no objection to bail and it was granted to him in the sum of $1,200 plus one surety of the same, which he was able to meet.
But before he could leave the court, he was taken to another courtroom where he was questioned as to why he was not meeting his dates for a previous offense.
After explaining himself to the court, the magistrate accepted Gillett’s reasoning and he was allowed to leave.
