Dennis Haylock, 37, committed to stand trial for unlawful sexual intercourse

BELIZE CITY, Wed. Sept. 19, 2018– Dennis Haylock, 37, a resident of Lords Bank in the Belize District, who has been charged with unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl 14 years and 11 months old, was today committed to stand trial in the January 2019 session of the Supreme Court by the Chief Magistrate, Sharon Fraser, after a preliminary inquiry was held.

Haylock had agreed to a paper committal, whereby all of the evidence that the Crown intends to rely on is submitted to the court without it being challenged by him.

The incident occurred in May 2017 in Lords Bank. The virtual complainant, accompanied by her mother and a social worker, went to the police station in Ladyville and reported that she and her cousin were walking on Lords Bank Road when they met Haylock, who began to walk with them.

She said her cousin continued on her way home, while she accompanied Haylock to his house. She said she spent the night at Haylock’s house and the next day he had sex with her.
