Williams and Leslie are charged with carnal knowledge and indecent assault of minor, 14
Today, John Williams, 30, a resident of #5 Myrtle Wade Crescent in Ladyville, and Stacey Leslie, 27, who resides at the same address, were charged with carnal knowledge and aggravated assault of an indecent nature respectively, when they appeared before the Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith.
According to police, a 14-year-old Ladyville student reported that at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 17, she met Williams as she was walking in the Hollywood area of Ladyville, and he invited her into his car. When she got into the car, she was introduced to Leslie, and they all travelled to Cayo.
They returned to Ladyville and went to Williams’ house, and that was when she was given some “weed” to smoke. She was then sexually assaulted by Leslie, after which Williams had sexual intercourse with her.
Williams and Leslie were unrepresented when they appeared in court, and Leslie pleaded not guilty to her charge. No plea was taken from Williams, as his charge is an indictable offense and will be heard in the Supreme Court.
Leslie was offered bail of $1,000, two hundred of which had to be paid in cash forthwith, with the balance as the surety. As of this afternoon, she was unable to meet that bail.
No bail was offered to Williams, and he was remanded to the Belize Central Prison. They are scheduled to appear back in court on October 29, 2013.
