Doris Grant and partner Alexander Underwood charged for alleged gang affiliation

Posted: Thursday, June 20, 2024. 10:43 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Doris Grant, 48, and her common-law husband, Alexander Underwood, 31, were remanded to the Belize Central Prison today after being charged with being members of a gang.

The couple, who on Sunday were injured in a shooting incident after leaving a Trinibad concert, pleaded not guilty to the charge. However, under Belizean law, bail for such charges can only be sought through the High Court.

Attorney Ronell Gonzalez attempted to argue for special circumstances for bail consideration, but the presiding Magistrate informed him that her hands were tied due to the law.

This recent charge adds another layer to Grant’s legal situation. On May 20, she was charged with multiple counts of theft and obtaining property and money by deception, totaling over $121,000 in alleged stolen funds. She was granted bail in that case with strict conditions.

As Grant was escorted to prison today, she expressed her frustration with the situation.

The couple will remain in custody until their next court appearance on July 31, before which their attorney will likely seek bail through the High Court. ‘
