Mervin Budram, former church leader, appears in court on sex abuse charges

Posted: Monday, November 6, 2023. 11:13 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Channel 7 News reports that ex-church leader Mervin Budram, detained by police over the weekend, appeared in court in Belmopan on Monday, charged with 13 counts of aggravated assault of an indecent nature.

Budram has hired attorney Arthur Saldivar, for whom Rachel Montejo held brief this morning. He was offered bail of $6,000 and two sureties.

Back in August, several young women came forward to reveal allegations that they were sexually abused by Budram. A criminal investigation was launched ending with the charges being laid.

At the time, Jubilee Ministries, Budram’s former home church, said it had initiated an investigation into Budram’s conduct, but no further details were provided.
