By BBN Staff: A Caye Caulker resident was fined in court this week, following a charge of harm to his wife, who he claims was having an affair.
Donald Durantes, 33, appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, where he was read a single charge of harm to which he initially pleaded not guilty.
He said that his wife was outside the courtroom ready to drop the charges; however, she did not have any identification on her to prove that she was indeed who claimed to be, as such, Durantes pleaded guilty to the charge.
He was fined $400 plus $5 cost of court which he must pay by August 31 or he will spend 4 months in jail for default.
In a police report, the wife explained that Durantes punched her in the face after accusing her of having an affair with their landlord.
