By Aaron Humes: Former First Class Clerk in the Government of Belize Treasury Department June Belisle, 43, has pleaded guilty to theft of $91,639.58 belonging to the Government between October 31, 2019 and October 11, 2020.

On Thursday, Belisle appeared before Justice Nigel Pilgrim in the presence of her attorney, Ronell Gonzalez, and pleaded guilty to theft.

Justice Pilgrim has reserved sentencing for November 28 and Belisle’s bail of $25,000 was further extended to that time when mitigating pleas will be heard on her behalf before the judge can decide on an appropriate sentence for the crime.

Belisle confessed shortly after being caught in 2020. Records showed that six individuals were fraudulently entered into the Government’s SmartStream payment system as teachers receiving Government salaries.

In fact, they were single mothers whom Belisle told that she was heading a financial assistance program. Monies would be deposited into their bank accounts monthly and they were allowed to keep a small portion and reimburse the rest to her.

Belisle told police in a caution statement that she was moved by her own financial strain.
