By BBN Staff: When 19-year-old Tyrone Gillett appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court this week on a charge of disorderly conduct, he begged the court to give him a fine, but he ended up going home with no penalty at all.

Gillett’s charge stemmed from a street fight back in April 2021 involving him and two others. He had pleaded not guilty in the first instance but not been showing up to court for his case, while the other two had shown up and pleaded guilty, so a bench warrant was issued for him.

On Wednesday, he appeared before Senior Magistrate Tricia Pitts-Anderson, where he told the court he was the father of a two-week-old child and promised that if he was fined and allowed to return to his family, he would do his best to stay out of trouble.

The senior magistrate informed Gillett that the other two accused had pleaded guilty and were released without penalty under Section 59 of the Summary Jurisdiction Act Chapter 99 of the Laws of Belize. She said that in fairness to him, she would grant the same mercy and, as such, was free to go.
