Jury convicts contractor of causing Scotland Halfmoon man’s death by traffic accident

Posted: Tuesday, February 27, 2024. 10:39 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: A jury of six women and three men returned a verdict of guilty of causing death by careless conduct against Brian August, 53, a contractor from Belmopan who was accused of fatally knocking down a resident of Scotland Halfmoon, Belize District on March 23, 2019.

The jury sitting before Justice Candace Nanton returned their verdict in 2 hours, 43 minutes after a trial of several days. Their verdict was unanimous. Justice Nanton has deferred sentencing for April 19, 2024 and ordered a Social Inquiry Report on August and an antecedent for the convict.

Representing August is former High Court judge, Adolph Lucas Sr., while prosecuting the case was Senior Crown Counsel Riis Cattouse.

August was coming from a funeral and heading to Belize City in his Chevy Silverado pick-up when he overtook a bus and collided with Vladimir Aguilar, who was driving his motorcycle.

In his defense, August admitted to knocking down Aguilar, but claimed it was not because he was careless, but because Aguilar was riding his motorcycle without any lights, hence he could not see him.
