15 years in prison for ex-cop Cyril Casimiro on child rape charge

Posted: Friday, May 26, 2023. 11:06 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Found guilty at trial of rape of a 14-year-old girl, former police officer Cyril Casimiro will spend the next 15 years in prison.

High Court Justice Antoinette Moore after a trial found Casimiro guilty on March 14 and the sentence takes effect from that date.

Casimiro, who had been a police officer for 19 years, expressed remorse, but the judge found that the injuries caused by the “brutal” sex act forced the victim to undergo surgery and caused lasting trauma for the now adult victim. Worse, it happened at the hands of a police officer sworn to protect and serve and who should have known better, said Justice Moore.

The victim testified that Casimiro, in uniform and on a Police Department-issued motorcycle, offered her a ride home in April of 2015 in Corozal Town, but instead took her to a deserted beach area on the Consejo Road and forced himself on her. At trial, Casimiro in his testimony entirely denied the allegation.

At the trial, Casimiro was represented by defense attorney Oscar Selgado.
