Lord’s Bank Resident Given Non-Custodial Sentence for Using Threatening Words to Police Officer

A resident of Lord’s Bank Village escaped jail time earlier today after he was given a non-custodial sentence for using threatening words to a police officer. 55-year-old Ray Anthony Peters appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court where he was read a single charge of using threatening words to Sergeant of Police, Lyndon Hewlett. In court, Peters initially pleaded not guilty and explained that the officer misinterpreted him as he was only joking with him and never threatened to chop the officer. Peter told the court that he knew the officer for the past 15 years and was only joking with him. However, after the facts were read out in court, Peters changed his plea to guilty. For his guilty plea, Peters was provided with a non-custodial sentence and received a fine of $100 plus a $5.00 cost of court fine which he was given until June 16, 2023, to pay.
