$100 for going to a police station cell and talking to a prisoner without authority

Jason Jonathan Espinosa, 20, a Belizean jockey of South End, Corozal, has been fined $200 by the Orange Walk Magistrate’s Court after he was arrested and charged for communicating with a prisoner without authority, and committing a mischievous act. He pleaded guilty to both charges and was fined $100 for each offense.

Espinosa had gone to the Corozal Police Station, where he began to talk to a prisoner without obtaining permission to do so. When he was asked his name, he replied that it was Marvin Ramclam.

Espinosa was subsequently arrested and charged for the offense of communicating with a prisoner without permission. He was then granted a phone call to his mother, during which he identified himself as Jason Jonathan Espinosa – thus revealing that he had given the police an incorrect name. He was then additionally charged for the offense of committing a mischievous act.

According to Que Pasa Corozal, an online newspaper, it was Assistant Superintendent Andrew Ramirez, the Commander of Corozal District police, who heard people talking by the cell block while he was in his office. He then went to see what was happening, and that was when he saw Espinosa talking to a prisoner in a cell.

It was Ramirez who informed Espinosa of the offense and asked him his name. Ramirez later arrested him for the offense of communicating with a prisoner without permission.

The incident occurred yesterday.
