Evyn Peña, 18, remanded for four counts of carnal knowledge

Evyn Adalid Membreno Ardon Peña, 18, a construction worker of #86 Antelope Street, appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Clive Lino today, where he was read four counts of carnal knowledge.

According to police, at 4:43 p.m. on Wednesday August 14, a minor and her mother visited the police station and reported that on March 10, 2013, she engaged in sexual intercourse with Peña when she visited his home on Antelope Street.

The minor also told police that in the months of April and May, he again engaged in sexual intercourse with her, and that it occurred a fourth time in this month.

According to the minor, after a doctor examined her, he confirmed that she was carnally known and also that she was pregnant. The minor told police that Peña was the only person with whom she had had sexual intercourse.

Because the matter is an indictable one, no pleas were taken from Peña, and neither could bail be offered to him. He was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until his next court appearance, scheduled for October 28, 2013.
