City Council employee charged with assault of ex-common-law

By Aaron Humes: 39-year-old Marvin Grant, driver/operator for the Belize City Council, was charged with common assault of his now ex-common-law-wife.

According to the complainant, she noticed unusual behaviour from Grant while at their home with her mother. When she asked what was wrong, he replied that they were “done,” sparking a verbal confrontation. The complainant walked away saying not to bother with her and Grant then allegedly punched her to the ground, then again. She grabbed his private area and he once again threw her to the ground as the confrontation continued. She eventually got away and called police.

In court, Grant tried to plead guilty but was unable to agree with the facts as read by Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford, saying that the complainant had initiated the action and that he called the police on her.

A not guilty plea was entered and bail of $300 was granted subject to conditions of not interfering with the complainant, any family members or other prosecution witnesses. The case is due back in court on July 13.
