By Breaking Belize News Staff: Jerod Dawson, 53, was convicted on Tuesday of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl in March 2022. Dawson was found guilty of one count of sexual assault and one count of assault of a child under 16 by penetration. He has been remanded to Belize Central Prison pending sentencing on July 5, 2024.

The case, prosecuted by Romey Wade of the DPP’s office, included testimony from several witnesses, including the victim, who testified in camera. The victim recounted that on March 14, 2022, Dawson, then 51, touched her inappropriately and fondled her vagina. Dawson’s trial, conducted by Justice Pilgrim without a jury, concluded with his conviction. Dawson, represented by attorney Virginia Requena, claimed the accusations were fabricated.
