Belize City man spared jail for domestic assault

By Aaron Humes: Leon Hamilton of Belize City was spared jail time after pleading guilty to aggravated assault and trespassing following a domestic incident on Monday.

Hamilton is accused of storming into a residence intending to cause bodily harm to his ex-common-law wife, the mother of his children. He was reportedly carrying a piece of stick. According to the complainant, he called her beforehand and she immediately called 911 asking for police assistance. He got into the yard and demanded to know where his children were before banging and stomping on the door which she had closed. Eventually, police arrived and took him away.

Hamilton appeared before Chief Magistrate Jayani Wegodapola and pleaded guilty, stating in court, “I know what I did was wrong but I just want you to have leniency on me for my action.”

Fortunately for the accused, he was a first-time offender, and so was only fined a total of $650 and cost of court on both charges, due by August 31.
