Accused school burglar granted bail

Posted: Friday, February 3, 2023. 8:34 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: After almost two months on remand for an alleged school burglary in Ladyville, James Bainton, 20, was granted bail through the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

Bainton was originally arraigned on December 5, 2022, on a single charge of burglary.

Bainton is accused of trespassing on the compound of the Seventh Day Adventist Primary School located at the corner of Mamey Road and Perez Road in Ladyville and stealing almost $700 worth of items including a bicycle belonging to the school’s cook valued at $350.

Bainton was granted bail in the sum of $3,000 plus one surety of the same amount or two sureties of $1,500 which he was first granted on Tuesday, January 17 when he had appeared before a Senior Magistrate in Court #2, but he was not able to post bail until Tuesday.

Bainton is presently awaiting disclosure in the school burglary and is not due back in court until March 27, a date tentatively set for disclosure in the matter.
