By Breaking Belize News Staff: A Belize City man who was charged with wounding another man was unable to post bail of $1,500 and was remanded to the Belize Central Prison.
Eric Leroy Jones, 43, of a Faber’s Road address appeared unrepresented in court #2 today where he was read a single charge of wounding. He initially pleaded guilty but offered an explanation to the court, saying that the man he is charged with wounding was in his mother’s yard after a report had already been made against him.
When the man returned to his mother’s yard aggressively, that is when the incident occurred for which Jones was charged with wounding. Based on his explanation, the Magistrate entered an unequivocal plea of not guilty on Jones’ behalf and offered him bail in the sum of $1,500 plus one surety of the same. Jones, however, could not make bail and was remanded to prison until his next court appearance on September 26.
