By Breaking Belize News Staff: Two men, Allen Anderson Jr. and Joshua Jones Jr., are remanded to prison charged with aggravated assault for allegedly opening fire with a gun on a police officer in Ladyville.

Anderson Jr. and Jones Jr. both appeared in court on Wednesday and were charged with aggravated assault with a firearm for allegedly shooting at a police officer who was responding to reports of an altercation.

Jones Jr. pleaded guilty to the crime while Anderson Jr. pleaded not guilty. For his guilty plea, Jones Jr. was given a $1,000 fine plus $5 cost of court and given until March 24 to pay, in default, 10 months in jail.

When Allen Jr. saw that Jones Jr. was given a fine for his guilty plea, he tried to change his plea from not guilty to guilty but attorney Richard “Dickie” Bradley, who was retained for Allen Jr. by his father, intervened on his client’s behalf and stuck with the not guilty plea. Allen Jr., however, had an outstanding fine which came back to haunt him and in the end both men were remanded to prison for the time being.
