Mechanic, 37, remanded for unlawful sexual intercourse with minor, 15

BELIZE CITY, Tues. Jan. 5, 2016–A Belize City mechanic and resident of Evergreen Street in the Lake Independence area was remanded to prison this morning after he appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, where he was arraigned on four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with an underage girl, 15.

Enfield Davis, 37, could not enter a plea when Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser read the four charges of unlawful sexual intercourse to him, because the offence is indictable and will be heard in the Supreme Court.

In addition to the four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with which he was charged, Davis was also charged with grievous harm upon the minor.

Police are alleging that in the first count, Davis had sex with the minor between July 22 and July 31, 2015.

The second incident allegedly occurred between September 1 and September 30, 2015, when Davis again had sex with the minor.

It is alleged that the third occasion on which he had sex with the minor was between November 1 and November 30, 2015, and the fourth sexual act allegedly happened on December 26, 2015.

Court papers indicate that Davis “intentionally and unlawfully caused grievous harm to the minor between July 22 and July 26, 2015.”

Magistrate Fraser told Davis: “I am adjourning your matter. I can’t give you bail, but your attorney knows what to do.”

Attorney Dickie Bradley, who was present for Davis’ arraignment, informed the court that he would be making an early application to the Supreme Court for bail on Davis’ behalf, although he said that he is not the attorney on record for Davis.

Davis is expected to return to court #4 on February 5.
